"I am living and breathing proof that anyone can win"

By: yourtown 18 Aug 2017 Prize Draws, Prize Homes

“I was renting with absolutely no chance of owning again and looking like I would have to work until I fell off the perch. One phone call changed all that and signalled the beginning of a new life.”

With just 400,000 tickets in our yourtown Prize Home draws, the chances of winning are high.

The winner of our 2015 Glebe home learned just that when their world was “turned upside down”.

“I have been purchasing tickets in the prize draw for about 12 years,” J of Glebe told us.

“Always with the hope of winning, but never the true belief it could happen.”

But it did. And it was life changing.

“I still walk around town like a tourist. Taking photos to record the many beautiful sights we mostly take for granted,” J said.

“I also know that my son and my future are secure, which is the biggest relief.”

For so many people, the dream of owning a home in Sydney can seem impossible – much less owning one of those inner-city properties worth millions.

For just $15 it can happen…

Right now we’re giving you the chance to win your own slice of inner-Sydney bliss, with the choice of a tri-level home in Glebe or a tranquil modern home in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

First prize is worth $1.67 million and includes furniture and electrical, plus legal fees.

Not only is it a win for you, it’s a win for the young people and families we work with through services like Kids Helpline, Parentline, job services, domestic violence and homelessness support.

“I am so grateful to yourtown for two reasons,” J said.

“Mostly, for the excellent work they do with disadvantaged youth, but now, for setting me up for life.

“I have been reluctant to write this testimonial despite the joy they have brought to my life, but hopefully it can inspire others to donate and know that you can also be this fortunate!”

Time is running out! Get your tickets now for Draw 469 and make sure you tune in to our Facebook Live Draw on September 4 to find out if you’re our next lucky winner.
