Extreme Good Fortune

When Paige Hemmis of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition told us she was going to be on Wheel Of Fortune's Celebrity Week to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater L.A. we were totally thrilled.

We love Paige and she has been a huge supporter or our affiliate since the first day she joined the Emmy winning show. Imagine how excited we were when we found out that she not only won, she won $22,850!

What a great way to kick up our Building A Greater L.A. campaign! Paige, we love you, thanks for your continuous support.
