KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Beverly Fulkerson, a former preschool teacher from Osgood, Indiana, has entered the HGTV home giveaways for over twenty years. This year, she won the HGTV® Dream Home 2019 . Fulkerson’s name was randomly drawn from nearly 135 million entries to win the grand prize package valued at more than $2.3 million – the largest giveaway in HGTV history.
The giveaway includes the completely remodeled and fully furnished home, the redesigned 2019 Honda Pilot Elite, plus $250,000 from Rocket Mortgage® by Quicken Loans®. The home is located in Whitefish, Montana, a Rocky Mountain resort town with picturesque scenery of majestic mountains and big skies.
Fulkerson says she was first drawn to the HGTV home giveaways in 1998 when HGTV Dream Home was located in beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina. She has been entering ever since, though she claimed, “I entered knowing that I would never win.”
Fulkerson is a mother of two and a grandmother of three.
Fulkerson and her husband will get a chance to see the home for the first time in the coming weeks. Viewers can witness her reaction to the ambush and the home itself by watching the HGTV Dream Home 2019 Giveaway Special premiering Friday, May 24 at 1 p.m. ET on HGTV.
