When Karen Anderson opened the door of her home in Bella Vista, Arkansas to see the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol standing outside, complete with champagne, balloons, and an oversized check, the first word out of her mouth was a shocked, "No!"
Karen Anderson, who lost her job in October, was shaking and near tears when she was told the big news. "You have no idea how this is going to help!" she said, in a trembling voice. "You have no idea what this means to me."
This was far from an overnight success story. Karen entered Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes for years before becoming a lucky winner. She started entering in 1997, but her persistence finally paid off. You can see her winning moment for yourself by watching Karen Anderson's winning video on the PCH website.
