Early birth­day present for lucky Alisha

Pilbara News - - News - Zach Relph

■ 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.
