New Orleans Woman Wins $2 Million Grand Prize Package in HGTV Dream Home Giveaway 2010, 18 Dec 2011 [cached]
NEW ORLEANS, March 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --The anguish of losing a home to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina was replaced by the joy of winning a new home when Myra Lewis learned she was the winner of the 2010 HGTV Dream Home, an enchanting, contemporary Pueblo-style home, located near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Lewis, assistant director of Dillard University's Deep South Center for Environmental Justice in New Orleans, Louisiana, is an avid HGTV fan who entered the giveaway each morning during the seven-week entry period.
"I'm blown away," said an emotional Lewis. "I'm blown away. This is just unbelievable!"
Lewis, whose name was drawn from more than 40 million entries, received the HGTV Dream Home 2010 grand-prize package with a retail value of $2 million. In addition to the new, custom-designed and fully furnished home, the grand prize package includes a 2010 GMC Terrain and $500,000.
New Orleans native Lewis, 63, is a former science teacher and Peace Corps volunteer. She and her son evacuated to Houston for six months following Katrina, but ultimately returned home to the community they loved so he could continue his art studies at Delgado Community College. They were particularly interested in the 2010 HGTV Dream Home because of the vibrant artists' community in the Santa Fe area.
Lewis's sister, Diedre Charlot, lives across the street and came rushing over as soon as she received a call from her weeping sister.
