"I still can’t believe whether this is real or not!"
The anticipation was palpable at RSL Art Union as Head of Lotteries Operations, Deborah Pescott, called the lucky winner of our $3.6 million Harbourside Gem or Gold.
Leonard* from Adelaide, SA was 15 minutes away from walking into a job interview when he received a phone call that would change his life forever.
“You’re kidding? Okay, that’s an interesting development to my day. I am 15 minutes away from walking into an interview and I am not sure if I’ll be able to focus now.”
As he processed the news, Deborah proceeded to ask Leonard what motivated him to purchase a ticket.
“I started purchasing tickets because my friend told me about RSL Queensland, and I thought it was a good cause to support. I never thought that I would actually win.”
“I still can’t believe whether this is real or not!”, he said in disbelief.
As the owner of the winning ticket number, Leonard now has an incredible choice to make between a spectacular Sydney apartment or $3.6 million in gold bullion.
Leonard’s good fortune doesn’t stop there. Because he purchased a $50 ticket book, he’ll also receive a bonus $50,000 in gold!
Congratulations to Leonard and a big thank you to all of our supporters. Each ticket sold enables RSL Queensland to provide much-needed assistance to Queensland's veterans and assists in funding programs for veterans throughout Australia.
