Red Cross raffle winner’s prize came just in time

When Ingleside resident Josie Everson randomly entered a Red Cross Raffle, she didn’t expect to win $20,000. But the cash prize came just in time for her to put money down on flights to Mexico for her grandson’s wedding. “The $20,000 is very appropriate timing because next month is when the deposit’s got to be paid on the wedding in Mexico,” she told Red Cross.

Josie generously makes donations to organisations she thinks are worth it; “and obviously Red Cross is one of them,” she said. “It’s very deserving and genuine.” Seeing the work Red Cross on the news, Josie decided to purchase tickets in Red Cross raffle.

“There’s so many scams around,” she said, “I sort of thought about it first and thought, ‘yes, it’s definitely genuine, I’m going to go for it!’” But she didn’t believe it when she first heard the news she’d won. “I got the message and thought ‘this is a scam, that’s it’. And then the cheque arrived in the mail. I thought: ‘It’s real!’”

The recent win is Everson’s second-ever prize. 40 years ago, she was lucky enough to win a Mercedes Benz, which she sold to fund the setup of her cattery. Having been in the pet business since she was 25, she was thrilled to accept the recent Red Cross cheque at her beautiful Northern Beaches Cat Motel.

This prize is extra special; giving her the chance to make her first trip to Mexico and join her family in celebrating her grandson’s special day.  She encourages Red Cross supporters to enter the raffle: “It’s going to happen to someone, and it happened to me. And it could happen to you, next raffle.”
