CORONA, Queens — A Queens family is this year’s first lucky winner of $11,000 from PIX11.

Mother Denise Peters, 40, thought she was just a finalist when reporter Kala Rama surprised her family with the BIG check Friday morning.

Denise’s family acknowledged that, “day by day, check by check, it’s kind of hard,” but now this $11,000 will help them not only pay bills, but go into the holiday shopping season with ease.

Congratulations to Denise and her family!!
