Wheel of Fortune winnings go to charity

Scott Kolbrenner of Encino, California, won $145,000 on the Wheel of Fortune episode that aired March 18, 2021, and gave it all to charity. The luck of the wheel was with him during the entire show. Along with the show's preset letters, R,L,S.T.N and E, Kolbrenner chose P,H,G and O for his chance at solving the grand-prize puzzle in the category "What are you wearing?" Once Vanna White finished turning tiles, only six letters remained hidden and he correctly guessed, "Flowing white gown."
Kolbrenner had already won $45,000, and Pat Sajack revealed the bonus amount was $100,000. Kolbrenner became the fifth-biggest winner in Wheel's 46-year history. He split his winnings between two local charities: Uplift Family Services and Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. He said he planned to donate any winnings to charity, but never dreamed he'd win so much money.
