Early birthday present for lucky Alisha
■ The opportunity to attend an AFL Grand Final is something Alisha Fenn has always dreamt of, yet the passionate West Coast Eagle supporter thought she might never get the chance.
“I’ve never been to an AFL Grand Final, although it’s always something I have wanted to do,” she said.
Now, the Binningup resident will be able to fulfil her lifelong dream after winning the West Australian Regional Newspaper Group’s footy finals competition.
“I am absolutely stoked to have won,” she said. “My husband is coming. He isn’t a fan of any team in particular but said he will even dress up.
“It’s my birthday on the grand final weekend too so I just can’t wait.” Mrs Fenn claimed the two tickets to this year’s AFL Grand Final, ahead of 7500 other entrants, after buying a product from the Leschenault Leisure Centre.
This year’s competition ran in eight different West Australian Regional Newspaper Group publications and required entrants to buy from participating businesses before they could enter.
Mrs Fenn said the possibility of watching her beloved Eagles claim premiership glory was an extremely exciting prospect.
Mrs Fenn thanked all of the sponsors involved.
