A Mona Vale woman is feeling the love after discovering her support of The Kids’ Cancer Project has led to her winning the $250,000 First Prize Pack in the latest Play For Purpose raffle.

The Sydney resident’s Play For Purpose prize from Raffle 15, drawn Friday, 10 June 2022, includes a Volkswagen California Beach worth $118,798, $125,000 in cashable gold and a $6,200 shopping spree at some of Australia’s leading retailers.

Each Play For Purpose ticket gives players the chance to win hundreds of prizes while supporting an Australian charitable cause of their choice.

When we reached out to the First Prize Pack winner, she was working and oblivious to her win.

“Oh my god! I love you. I love you, I love you!” she screamed when her win was revealed.

“Is this real life? I’ve never won anything in my entire life.

“I only bought an entry into Play For Purpose because I know it’s going to the kids.

“Every year, I pick two charities that I donate to and support throughout the year, and I’m so glad I’m supporting The Kids’ Cancer Project this year.

“What did I win? A VW California Beach and a shopping spree? Wow!

“Oh, I can’t wait to go shopping now. Honestly, this has come at the perfect time.

“It was only the other day that I was talking about getting a campervan.

“I’d love to see more of Australia, so I can’t wait to get on the road. It’ll be a throwback to my younger years!

“Oh, I’m starting to hyperventilate. I need to sit down. I can’t believe this has happened to me.  

“I’ll celebrate with friends, maybe over dinner and drinks.

“Thank you so much! You’ve made my year.”

The winner bought her winning Play For Purpose ticket in support of The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Head of Individual Giving at The Kids’ Cancer Project Dane Hiser said it was shocking that more children died of cancer in Australia every year than any other disease. 

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who generously supported The Kids’ Cancer Project through the raffle,” he said. 

“Funds raised will be used to fund vital scientific research to discover kinder, more effective treatments for the 950 Australian children diagnosed with cancer every year.”  

Other major prize-winners were from across Australia, including Ningi, Normanhurst, Stafford and Ballan, who won prize packages for buying Play For Purpose tickets in support of Act for Kids, Rural Aid, AMA Queensland and Love Your Sister.
