Heroes Draw 2014 - Winners Story
Ben Allen* from Hocking in Western Australia received an early birthday present today when he answered the life changing call that informed him he is now $1.5 million richer as the first prize winner of the VIP Heroes draw.
“Wahoo! That’s unbelievable!” Mr Allen exclaimed upon hearing the news.
Persistence has paid off for Mr Allen, who has been a VIP supporter of RSL Art Union for over a decade and his $20 ticket book purchase in this draw means he adds another $40,000 in gold to his $1.5 million prize.
The $1.5 million prize amount can be transferred to his bank account in time for his birthday celebrations so he now has the very enviable decision of how he would like to spend it.
This prize is not only changing the life of Mr Allen but also the hundreds of service people returning from Afghanistan suffering from mental and physical injuries. Funds raised through this special draw are going to heroes like Paul Warren who lost his lower right leg and witnessed his friend’s death during his time overseas.
Mr Allen mentioned that he knew many people who had returned from Vietnam and was pleased to hear that the funds raised were going towards such a worthy cause.
Congratulations to Mr Allen and all of our winners in this special once-a-year VIP Heroes draw.
