I was in shock!

A young man from New South Wales is still in a state of shock after finding out he has won $228,000 in Gold Bullion in the BoysTown Prestige Car Draw.



Mark won first prize in BoysTown's Prestige Car Draw #1089 which included the option of choosing a Porsche 911 Carrera, a BMW X5 M50D or $228,000 in Gold Bullion.

Mark chose the Gold Bullion and like most BoysTown winners, he couldn’t believe it when he got the call about his life changing win.

“At first I didn't believe it and thought it was an elaborate office prank. It took a bit of convincing over the phone but I finally came to terms with what I had won and went into a state of shock,” said Mark.

Mark plans on using most of his winnings on an investment property. But he will also be taking a long overdue holiday later in the year to celebrate his win and he will keep the remainder invested in gold.



As I am still under 25 years old, this will completely change my life. It has fast tracked years of saving and will allow me to start investing earlier than I could ever have imagined. If everything goes to plan then this will help set me up for the rest of my life. Mark, New South Wales

Mark also plans to continue buying BoysTown tickets.

“I will keep buying tickets to the art union because I genuinely support the services that BoysTown offers to those in need. It's not all about winning but there is always a chance of winning another prize!”

In the next BoysTown Prestige Car Draw you could win your choice of a Maserati Ghibli S Plus $18,000 Gold Bullion or $230,000 Gold Bullion!

Don’t forget to buy your tickets now and it could be you who gets a life changing phone call.
