Local family wins grand prize in America’s Funniest Home Videos

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A local family celebrates as they watch their son become a finalist on Sunday’s episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

10-year-old Luke Finlan was crowned the winner tonight who got plenty of laughs for a recording of him singing and getting all choked up at his school’s graduation concert at Shaker Road Elementary.

Luke told the audience he cried because he loves his school.

The moment was all caught on camera and granted enough laughter to land him and his family a top spot on the show.

Luke and his family took home first place earning them $10,000 in prize money.

Luke says he’s donating some of his earnings to Solider Heart Organization and to Equinox.

His family also held an event at Wolfs 1-11 where around 300 people showed up in support and raised another $4,000.
