(WMC-TV) - An Olive Branch woman will live free for the next year thanks to Action News 5 and Ashley Furniture HomeStore.

Patricia Ives was one of 200 people who gathered at the Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Memphis Friday to find out if she was the winner of the "Live Free for a Year" contest

As the winner, Ives will have her mortgage paid for the next year, gas or groceries for a year, and two season tickets for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ives said this has changed her life as she was in danger of losing her home.

"This is going to save me, and it's going to keep my children where they need to be, which is Olive Branch, and they've got great schools," said Ives.  "I don't know what to say.  I'm just so happy and excited."

The prize is worth a total of $20,000.
