The Act for Kids lottery winner for draw 74 has been announced! Mark, a South Australian resident and longtime supporter of Act for Kids, has won a brand-new Mercedes-Benz worth almost $100,000! In addition to his new performance vehicle, Mark has won $10,000 worth of platinum bullion to spend how he wishes.
As well as regular donations to Act for Kids, Mark and his family are longtime supporters of various not-for-profit organisations. Mark is an active member of the Mankind Project, a network of independent peer support groups assisting men finding and maintaining their mission in life. His partner is involved with a women’s, youth and children’s group to help other’s with their trauma. You couldn’t find a family more deserving of the win!
“With Act for Kids, it has always felt like donating to a good cause. My partner and I have both known adults damaged from the abuse they suffered as children, and it is a lifetime of suffering. It shouldn’t happen. Children need to feel safe and loved,” he said.
The win couldn’t have come at a better time, as Mark unfortunately recently lost his job. On his last day of work, he received the call from Act for Kids informing him of his win!
“The win definitely came at the right time. My partner and I only had one vehicle between us and losing my job was scary financially. Now we have breathing space, can plan for our future and can try to make the best out of this win,” he said.
Mark purchased three tickets and had a 1 in 3,000 chance of winning 1st prize. He was also given the choice of a $10,000 holiday voucher or platinum bullion!
