For years, we’ve all seen the commercials of a van pulling up in front of a house, a camera crew, people with balloons, and a man with a huge check pile out and knock on the door. And for the same number of years, we’ve all dreamed of that being our front doors so that we could win all that wonderful money. Many believe that there’s no way it really happens, but as Crowley resident Maxine Richeson can tell you, it really does happen!
A very real van with a very real giant check showed up at the Richeson home in Crowley on Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately, Maxine wasn’t home when the knock on the door came, but they quickly tracked down Maxine to deliver her winnings of $30,000. Her winfall couldn’t have had better timing. Her home is in need of repairs.
“Thank god, thank god. My home is falling apart. It really is. We’ve had so much bad luck. I can’t believe it, god is so good!” Maxine exclaimed.
Maxine says she’s been playing Publisher’s Clearing House for over 20 years. She’s proof that the big win really does happen!
