NEW JERSEY RESIDENT WINS HGTV GREEN HOME GIVEAWAY 2011
Sayreville, New Jersey -- July 1, 2011 -- New Jersey resident Debbie Stolte has won the HGTV Green Home 2011. Stolte learned she was the winner of the 2011 Giveaway on Tuesday evening when HGTV’s Jamie Durie came to her home in Sayreville, NJ, looking for her. Her grand prize package includes the eco-friendly, single-family home located in the Stapleton community of Denver, a 2011 GMC® Terrain® and $100,000.
“I am so excited! My heart is going crazy, I am so happy,” said Stolte. “This couldn’t have come at a better time. I am out of work so this is miraculous!”
Stolte, a former special education teacher’s aide, almost missed Durie’s visit. She, husband Brian and teenage daughter Erica had gone out to dinner when Durie made the surprise appearance at her home to give her the news. Fortunately, a curious neighbor who came out to see what was going on was able to give her a call to return home. Stolte had entered the giveaway once each day on HGTV.com and once each day on HGTV's Frontdoor.com throughout the entry period.
