Meet the winner of the WCH Foundation Home Lottery
The Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation was overwhelmed by the support of the South Australian community to our inaugural Home Lottery. The lottery was launched in April 2019 and across the three months tickets were on sale the Foundation was delighted to hear from many purchasers of the incredible care they or their family member had received at the Hospital over the years.
On June 29 2019 the winners of more than 4,100 prizes were drawn.
Tahlia on the Grand Prize, the $1.5 million Medallion Home. The school teacher was overwhelmed with emotions when she received the call that she had just become a home owner.
Tahlia has shared what it has been like living in the amazing and very big Medallion Home!
“I had been contemplating buying a home lottery ticket for a few years. When I first heard the WCH Foundation’s lottery ad I decided to buy one because some students and families from school have had a personal connection with the Hospital in one way or another,” Tahlia said.
“How has winning the home changed my life? Where do I start! I will never have a mortgage so being financially set up for life is huge. It has been life changing.
“I love the home’s open living space, the master bedroom is amazing, as well as the storage. I really love the high ceilings as it gives the house a sense of space and luxury, but it is still homely and practical.
“Thank you to everyone at the Foundation, it really has been an incredible experience.”
