“Are you serious? Oh my god! I’m just at Coolangatta!”
There were moments of pure disbelief, ecstasy and irony when Redcliffe man Chris* was told he’d won RSL Art Union Draw 399 – the $10.6 million ultimate Gold Coast beach house!
Chris was initially speechless when Deborah Pescott, RSL Art Union General Manager of Lotteries Commercial & Investments, called with the news. And ironically, he took the phone call while in Coolangatta for work – only minutes away from the amazing million-dollar prize home at Currumbin that he’d just won!
Chris, whose grandfather served in the defence force, has been supporting RSL Art Union for some time and has only dreamt of winning – that dream is now a reality!
The $10.6 million ultimate beach house
With uninterrupted ocean views, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a swimming pool and $322,594 worth of furniture and appliances, this breathtaking Currumbin prize home has it all.
Believe it or not, Chris has some tough choices to make. He can make the move to Currumbin to enjoy the ultimate beach life, rent out the property and earn an estimated $171,600 per year, or sell it and become an instant millionaire.
However, as the news sank in, his first decision was to focus back on finishing off his last remaining jobs for the day before doing a quick drive-by of his new beach house.
And the good news kept coming. Because he bought an $80 ticket book, he’ll also take home a bonus $80,000 in gold!
Congratulations, Chris – we wish you all the very best for the future!
Many thanks to you and all who support RSL Art Union. Every ticket sold helps veterans in Queensland and throughout Australia.
