Heroes Draw VIP06
“You must be joking! I’ve never won anything in my life!”
It was an extraordinary day for Mr Greg Russell* from Bentley Park, Queensland as he received the call that would change his life forever. Answering his phone this morning Mr Russell had no idea that he was about hear the news that he was the first prize winner of the VIP-only Heroes Draw and $1.5 million in gold richer.
Mr Russell, a long time VIP supporter of RSL Art Union, couldn’t contain both his excitement and disbelief as RSL Art Union informed him of his win.
Gathering his thoughts Mr Russell exclaimed that this win had come as a real surprise “you must be joking, I’ve never won anything in my life!”. With $1.5 million in gold bullion, Mr Russell can now enjoy a comfortable retirement with plenty of options at his fingertips!
In the follow-up confirmation call conducted a short 30 minutes later, Mr Russell, quite clearly humbled with his win, revealed that he had already written out a list of how this win will help his children, as well as being able to contribute to his niece’s upcoming wedding and attending to his much-needed home repairs.
As a $30 book buyer, Mr Russell will also receive an extra $55,000 in gold bullion, to top off his win!
Congratulations to Mr Russell and our second and third prize winners in this special Heroes Draw.
We acknowledge the significance of the draw occurring near Remembrance Day, knowing this day means a lot to current and ex-service men and women, as well as the greater community. We are truly thankful to have your support that enables the RSL to provide vital assistance to Australia's veteran heroes.
