Draw 353 - Winners

Coming full circle – In a heart-warming turn of events, our $2.3 million Queensland Trifecta was drawn this morning, changing the lives of returned serviceman and long-term supporter Michael Stuart* and his lovely partner Jan*.

The anticipation grew as RSL Art Union General Manager, Tracey Bishop, prepared to make the million-dollar call to the winner of Draw 353, Michael Stuart of Keilor East Victoria. His life was very much about to change as the new owner of not just one, but three luxury apartments, in Brisbane, on the Sunshine Coast and on the Gold Coast and $300,000 in gold richer.

Blissfully unaware of his new-found fortune Michael, a returned serviceman and long-time RSL supporter, happily chatted away to Tracey about all the possibilities that this multi-million-dollar prize could give him, revealing he could see himself selling two apartments and living in the other – that was if he won, of course.

Tracey, about to disclose the news to Michael, asked “are you sitting down?” In a quick-witted response he promptly replied “I am. Well, I can't exactly get up right now, I have a brace on my leg.”

After the news hit, Michael yelled out to his wife Jan in disbelief “Jan! Did you hear? We won the apartments! We won!”

On top of their three contemporary furnished apartments, all with breathtaking water views, this prize also includes $300,000 worth of gold, which Michael and Jan can choose to spend, invest or save however they please. Plus, as $100 book buyers, they will also receive an additional $135,000 in gold to add to this already life-changing prize package. This takes the grand total of gold winnings to a whopping $435,000!

Sensibly, Michael and Jan will use their $2,000 travel voucher included in this prize, to travel up to their new Queensland apartments for a relaxing beach getaway, as they consult with a financial advisor about how to get the most out of their new-found fortune.

Who could be more deserving of this prize than a modest philanthropic serviceman supporting fellow veterans? It will surely make this handover to 80-year-old Michael Stuart* and his wife a particularly special one for the team here at RSL. We can’t wait to meet the lovely couple to give them the three sets of keys that will open the doors to their new life.

Thank you to all of our supporters who helped to make Draw 353 such a success. We would like to wish everyone a pleasant Easter break.
