We spoke to our Lottery 178 Winner about his $705,000 prize win, and what it really means to help others.

As the fundraising arm of Deaf Services, The Deaf Lottery exists to raise money to help others, funding programs empowering Deaf and hard of hearing Australians to live independent, connected and social lives.

The Worthiest Cause

Posted by The Deaf Lottery Australia on 04/06/2019 1:38:40 PM

We spoke to our Lottery 177 Second Prize Winner Gavin*, from Melbourne, who won $5000, and is using his winnings for a very worthy cause: his family.

Gavin describes himself as having an “incredibly lucky” life, despite being dealt what many would likely view as an unlucky hand.

Gavin and his wife care for their two sons, 23 and 15, who both have complex health issues. Their eldest has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, an untreatable genetic condition affecting joints, skin and blood vessels, a condition not diagnosed until he was 18, after countless operations and hospital visits.
