[0] Pennsylvania Resident a $1,000,000 Surprise Winner in Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

Entertainment Editors


A woman in Pennsylvania received the surprise of a lifetime today after opening her door to America's most welcome drop-in guests.

Ms. Trudi Hausmann of the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains received a surprise visit from the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol, who named her the latest winner of the company's famous sweepstakes. Her

husband, Bill, is a retired Lutheran Pastor, making this the sixth

minister's family who has won a Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

The Prize Patrol, headed by Dave Sayer, presented Ms. Hausmann with a giant prize certificate for $1,000,000.00 and bouquets of roses and balloons. The surprise notification of the winner is a Publishers

Clearing House tradition.

"The surprises you see in our commercials are 100% authentic. The winners do not know we are coming. We just ring their doorbells and give them the good news while the video camera rolls," Sayer said.

This award brings the total amount of major prizes given away in the

Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes to over $160 million.

For those who didn't have Ms. Hausmann luck this time around, there are always more opportunities to win. The company faithfully awards dozens of major prizes ranging from $10,000 to $10 million all

year long, along with other prizes. Even more chances to win can be

found by visiting, the company's online affiliate. A

multi- million dollar prize will be awarded this coming January

following the Super Bowl.

Publishers Clearing House, the world's largest multi-magazine subscription agency, was founded in Port Washington, NY in 1953. Its name has become synonymous with the sweepstakes and prizes it has used

since 1967 to draw attention to its "unbeatable" magazine values and

merchandise offerings. For more information, visit
