The local school’s raffle has some serious competition. Newly divorced Millionaire banker Andrew Paul wants to raffle off his life.
Andrew Paul, 38, is looking to ‘make a fresh start’ after splitting from his wife of five years. He’s come up with a pretty interesting way to do it. He’s selling raffle tickets for £20 a piece. The prize? His life.
That includes a £1.1m five-bedroom house, £160,000 Aston Martin DBS and his £200,000 Sealine 35 Sport motor boat. Paul says these items now hold ‘too many painful memories’ for him and is offering them as a prize at winanewlife.com. The first prize also includes £85,000 in legal fees and insurance costs for the car & boat in the first year. The winner can also choose to take £1m in cash as an alternative to the prizes.
If Paul achieves the maximum number of ticket sale, 200,000, he will gross a total of £4million, making a very healthy profit at a time when it might otherwise have been hard to sell his house.
Apart from the £20 price of the raffle ticket, the lucky winner will have to correctly guess the location of a golf ball within a picture. The auction ends in August 2009, so hurry on over there and your ticket. I certainly will.
