81-Year-Old Woman Clears $10 Million From Publishers Clearing House

SPARTA, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An 81-year-old woman in Sparta, Tennessee, is $10 million richer than yesterday (Feb. 28).

But she’s more focused on the riches that really matter.

Elizabeth Green is the latest winner of the annual Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes after receiving the check yesterday (Feb. 28) from PCH PR point man Dave Sayer, who has been awarding similar prizes for 18 years.

Green is retired from her family’s shoe repair business but still farms, gardens and raises cattle.

In fact, after she won a preliminary $1000 prize, her first thought was to buy enough fertilizer to cover her fields.

Now, that she’s won a slightly larger amount of loot, Green plans on also taking care of her two kids, five grandkids and three great-grandkids, and donate some of her winnings to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Although Green was happy to win the big prize, it wasn’t a complete surprise. She’s been entering the PCH sweepstakes since the 1970s and suspected this might be her year.

Still, she admits, “I didn’t want to tell anyone ’cause I thought they’d make fun of me.”
