Prize Patrol in Gig Harbor

Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol in Gig Harbor!

Prize Patrol in Gig Harbor!Yesterday while taking advantage of the beautiful day to get some new photos, I started chatting with another "photographer" standing beside me.   We were down at the old ferry landing trying to get the perfect shot of a sailboat making its way across Gig Harbor Bay.

As it turns out, Andrew, the other photographer was visiting from New York and was here on a very special mission.  He and his associate, John were members of the Prize Patrol from Publisher's Clearing House and had come to Gig Harbor to award a prize to a local resident.  How cool is that!?

Now I'll admit, I've always been a tad skeptical about whether these prizes ever actually existed.  I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here....  But as I talked to Andrew and John, I learned a little about the various regional contests.  There are contests based on your first name, initials - all kinds of fun little things.   So they award many more prizes than just the big one in February.  Who knew?

To see a winner in Gig Harbor assured me that there indeed is a Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol.  In fact Andrew and John are headed to Seattle to award another prize today.  

What a fun job that must be!

NIce Article.  My sister just moved to gig harbor from Portland, and I fouond your blog on google. 

I was hoping to find  a small office suite in seattle.  Do you have any advice on searching in Seattle.  I found a couple websites online, cityfeet.com and seattle office spaces?

Should i work with a broker or represent myself?

It was refreshing to find out that the contest is not a scam.  The Gig Harbor recipient received $5,000, the Seattle winner got $10,000.  Not sure how all those various contests work, but they sound fun. 

Kyle:  The new bridge has made commuting a non-issue.  It's great!  Gig Harbor has grown up and we now have all the shopping we could want over here.  And a new state-of-the-art hospital as well.  So those of us who work on this side of the bridge don't pay the toll as often as we would have a couple of years ago.

Gina:  I'd try www.commercialmls.com but if you don't have any luck with that, let me know and I'll find you someone who can help.

Mark:  You need to visit!  But summer is better.....see you then!

I, too was on the Publishers Clearing House Prize patrol last week and awarded $10,000.00 to recipients in Monroe, Iowa; La Cygne, Kansas and Wichita, Kansas. We wanted people to know that real people get real money. We called them "Reality Checks"
