An audience made up entirely of first responders – firefighters, EMTs, 911 operators, police officers and other workers on the frontlines – will be called to come on down and compete for amazing prizes, including luxury cars, vacations and more.

As a thank you for all these heroes who protect and serve us, THE PRICE IS RIGHT is making a donation to DDPR client, FIRST RESPONDERS CHILDREN'S FOUNDATION, which provides financial support and awards scholarships to children of first responders who have been injured or lost their lives in the line of duty.
