“TELL ME PLEASE YOU'RE NOT A PRANK CALL!”
Ian*, from Far North Queensland, was still in his pyjamas when he got the call that would change his life.
He’d just won RSL Art Union Draw 392: the ultimate $3.6 million beachfront oasis!
“Tell me please you’re not a prank call!” Ian said as Deborah Pescott, our Head of Lotteries Commercial Operations, delivered the happy news.
Ian handed the phone to his wife Pamela*, and it became clear he was trying to prove a point.
“I’m just looking at his face,” Pamela laughed. “He’s giving me the look because I’m the one rousing at him about buying tickets all the time!”
The ultimate $3.6 million beachfront oasis
Looks like Ian is out of the doghouse! He and Pamela are now the owners of a luxury, absolute beachfront apartment in the heart of Surfers Paradise, valued at $3.2 million.
With three bedrooms, an oversized balcony, $136,784 worth of furniture and appliances, and breathtaking ocean views, this beautiful prize home offers a dream escape.
Ian and Pamela will get to spend endless summers relaxing at the beach or in the pool, enjoying all the wonders of the Gold Coast!
Plus, they’ll have $350,000 in gold – including a bonus $100,000, because they bought a $100 ticket book – to spend as they please!
“RSL has always been very, very important to our family”
As excited as they were about the chance of winning a prize, Ian and Pamela have very personal reasons for supporting RSL Art Union.
Ian’s late father was a serviceman – and after the bombing of Japan, he was one of the first Australians dispatched to assist with the clean-up.
“It affected his lungs for many, many years,” Pamela explained to us. “So anything to do with RSL has always been very, very important to our family.”
Winning a multimillion-dollar dream home, while also helping veterans in need, has been the ultimate win-win for Ian and Pamela.
“The fact that it’s an RSL prize home just makes it that little bit more special.”
A heartfelt thanks
Congratulations, Ian and Pamela – we wish you all the very best for the future!
A heartfelt thanks to you, and to all RSL Art Union’s wonderful supporters. Every ticket sold helps veterans in Queensland and throughout Australia.
