This Friday, May 3, the Pitts Family will compete against the Grace Family from Chicago. Each family has a chance to win $100,000 and a new car. The show airs at 7 p.m. on WUPA (Channel 69).
The Pitts Family includes Haley, a teacher; husband, John, a software engineer; mother, Susan, a recruiter; brother-in-law, Andy, a teacher; and sister, Jennifer, also a teacher.
