“You never hear of people winning these things. Well it happens… and it’s exciting when it does!” – Mater Cars for Cancer winner of lottery 85
Jay from Mudgeeraba was on his way to Thailand for a holiday with his wife when he got a life-changing call. It was Mater Foundation Queensland calling to say he had won an incredible HSV Camaro! While the lucky winner was a VIP member for all the Mater Lotteries, meaning all his tickets were automatically purchased, he still didn’t believe it was real.
“No, this can’t be right…that can’t be true.”
But after getting in touch with their sons, Jay realised it was and couldn’t sleep from the exciting news. Not only had he won his dream car – a HSV Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe – but also $100,000 in cash!
Funnily enough, Jay’s wife, Sallie revealed that Jay had said, “my dream car is a Camaro” right before they headed off on holidays!
When the excited winner was finally home and able to pick up his prize, he couldn’t have been happier. His wife proudly said that he had, “the same smile that he had when we got married!”
The Mater Cars for Cancer winner knows all too well why the charity is so important. Run by Mater Foundation Queensland, the money raised in the Mater Lotteries goes towards funding vital research and care in cancer and medical research.
Sadly, Sallie’s mother passed away from cancer at just 50 years old. The couple sincerely feels it is important to support Mater Foundation Queensland in helping with cancer research.
“Like everybody else, we all know someone that’s lost someone to cancer… it’s something that is close to everyone, not just us. Being a VIP is just a way to make sure that we are supporting the charity every month.”
