On November 30th, 2011, the PCH Prize Patrol set out to deliver the life-changing Mega Prize, $1,000,000.00 plus $5000.00 A Week For Life to Leroy Faulks Sr. of Orange, NJ.
They were accompanied by a team from AOL.com that recorded their journey. Danielle Lam kept fans guessing by posting videos, photos, and clues on her Fan Page as well as the PCH Fan Page. Soon it was clear that the Prize Patrol was in New Jersey preparing to surprise the winner.
In Orange, NJ, Dave Sayer, Todd Sloane, and Danielle Lam walked up the steps of the winner’s home, carrying the Big Check, balloons, and champagne. When Leroy Faulks, Sr. was presented with the prize, he was speechless. Leroy could hardly get out more than a couple of exclamations of “OH!"
Leroy told NJ.com that he plans to donate some of his winnings to his church, as well as the Donna T. Darrien Memorial Foundation for Sickle Cell. He also would like to buy himself a Nikon camera and a diamond ring for his wife. Congratulations Leroy!
