Win two absolute beachfront villas 
RSL Art Union Draw 356 - 1

Draw 356 - Winners

From caravans to riches – this is a $2 million story to warm your heart.

At 78 years old, Michael Wilson*, a $10 VIP supporter from Gaven on the Gold Coast, should have been told to expect the unexpected. Cheerily receiving a call from RSL Art Union’s Kate Watman this morning, there was no way to know that he had won Draw 356 and was now $2 million richer. This morning Mr Wilson’s ticket number 1,047,901 was drawn and as a result he was posed with the life-changing $2 million question – would you prefer a luxury townhouse in Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Lilyfield or $2 million in gold?

During the call the Gold Coast local revealed that although he currently lives in a caravan in his daughter’s backyard, Queensland is his home and he wouldn’t like to move as far as Sydney. He already knew that he would choose the $2 million gold with the dream to purchase a home in a nearby retirement village and finally put his feet up in comfort.

Mr Wilson is taking the win in his stride, and understandably so. Mr Wilson shared that although he had been retired for 14 years, there was never enough money available to enjoy his retirement. Now with the financial means to indulge his love of travel, speed boats and move into a home of his choosing, Mr Wilson can well and truly start to live out his life to the absolute fullest.

Mr Wilson's prize does not end there, as a $10 book buyer he will receive a further $30,000 in gold plus a $2,000 travel voucher to spend as he pleases!

Congratulations to Mr Wilson and all the winners of Draw 356. From all of us here at RSL Art Union, thank you for your support and good luck in the current lottery, Draw 357, where supporters will have the chance to win a $3.7 million prize - TWO absolute beachfront villas on the Gold Coast!
