Brand new car follows last minute raffle purchase

23 June 2020

RLSSWA's Allan Godfrey with raffle winner Ben, and Wild West Hyundai Dealer Principal David FilmanRoyal Life Saving WA's latest raffle winner took home a brand new car today after his lucky winning ticket number 54553 was drawn in our May raffle. Ben from Yokine says the win was a massive surprise!“I couldn’t believe it when I got the call as I had just purchased tickets in the raffle the night before. My brother is a Royal Life Saving VIP member and he forwarded the email onto me to see if I wanted to buy tickets.”

Royal Life Saving WA runs three major raffles each year, to support our drowning prevention work in the WA community, with winners given the option of taking $15,000 cash or a brand new Hyundai. Royal Life Saving WA General Manager Marketing, Allan Godfrey, called Ben to pass on the great news after the raffle was drawn. Ben says the timing was impeccable! “When Allan called, my brother Josh who sent me the email was actually in the room and he heard the whole thing. He reckons we will have to co-share the car because if it wasn't for him I would't have won."

Raffle winner, Ben, in his brand new car

Ben picked up his brand new car from Wild West Hyundai today, where Dealer Principal David Filmann and his team made a very special effort to "gift wrap" the vehicle. Ben was very impressed with the effort! "The car is just fantastic and I am so excited to have won. I am also so thankful to the team at Royal Life Saving WA and Wild West Hyundai for organising everything and letting me upgrade the car."

Wild West Hyundai are great supporters of Royal Life Saving WA, offering special deals for our members and also providing two vehicles that help our fundraisers and pool inspectors to travel around and complete their important work across the northern suburbs.

We wish Ben all the the best as he enjoys his new car, and thank him, and his brother Josh, for their support! If you'd like to be in the running to win our next raffle, which will be drawn in Spetember, you can purchase tickets at the link below.
