Revealing a dash of humor as he humanized the moment, Brian asked if the foundation could postpone the big announcement until Suzanne returned from the grocery store. The HSN Foundation, eager to share the exciting news, complied with his request. Noting his wife’s good fortune, Brian humorously observed, “Suzanne is definitely the lucky one, that’s why her name is on the ticket and not mine.”

Returning home from the grocery run with no inklings of the transformation awaiting her, Suzanne picked up the phone. She listened, dazed and delighted, as news of her hefty jackpot win was unveiled.

“I was out at the grocery store when Brian said I needed to come home because there was an important call waiting for me,” Suzanne explained. “The surprise news that we won the June grand prize was exhilarating. While we have no specific plans for the unexpected windfall, the wave of excitement and the potent feeling of good fortune was simply overwhelming.”
