Heroes Draw 2016 - Winner's Story
“This has absolutely made my day!”
Mr John Tallon* in Valentine, New South Wales, became the first prize winner of $1.5 million in gold bullion for the special VIP only Heroes Draw.
It was a busy day at work for Mr Tallon, so busy that he only found out he had won hours after the draw had taken place. John, a long-term supporter of RSL Art Union, couldn’t contain his surprise and excitement when RSL Art Union General Manager, Tracey Bishop, informed him of his win. “Are you serious? Are you really serious? This has absolutely made my day!”
Mr Tallon can now make some enviable decisions about the opportunities $1.5 million will bring. John will be able to enjoy the millionaire’s lifestyle. He could pay off his mortgage and live debt free, take the holiday he’s always dreamed of, buy his dream house and dream car!
Plus, to top off his win, as a $30 book buyer, John also receives an extra $55,000 in gold bullion!
Congratulations to Mr Tallon and all of our winners in this special VIP only Heroes Draw. The ongoing support of VIPs enables the RSL to provide vital support to Australia’s veteran heroes, like David Neagle, and we thank you for this.
