Shirley can distinctly remember the moment she received the life-changing call informing her she was the winner of Mater Prize Home lottery No. 280, an amazing resort style home on Bribie Island, less than a week before Christmas.
At first she thought “is this for real?”, but once her sister-in-law confirmed the winning ticket number and suburb posted on the website, Shirley knew it was truly happening.
“After trying to win for so long… it finally happened. This is better than celebrating my birthday!”
For Shirley, this stunning home worth over $1.7 million on Bribie Island is truly a dream come true, and she plans to spend time there enjoying the sunshine with her family.
“It’s a dream come true really. My family will benefit so much from this.”
A long-term VIP supporter, Shirley’s decision to sign up as a Mater Prize Home VIP Member was close to her heart. Her eldest grandson had received care at Mater’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when he was born at 24 weeks – weighing in at just 765 grams.
“During the three months he was in hospital we went through some worrying times, but he pulled through thanks to the skill and dedication of the doctors and nurses at the Mater.”
