From caravans to riches – a $2 million story to warm your heart
78 year old Michael Wilson*, a $10 VIP supporter from Gaven on the Gold Coast, recieved an unexpected call from RSL Art Union’s Kate Watman 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?
Mr Wilson, now $2 million richer, 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 live his retirement 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!
