Gus’s hugs up for auc­tion

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - FRONT PAGE -

RON­ALD McDon­ald House Perth’s di­rec­tor of hugs and pats is hands down the most pop­u­lar em­ployee at the Ned­lands fa­cil­ity.

Chil­dren nearly knock down the ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fice’s door want­ing to hug, pat and brush Gus the black labrador, who joined the team just over a year ago.

A lucky bid­der at this weekend’s Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties Ball at Crown Perth will get to spend 30 min­utes with Gus but guests are warned, he does not come cheap.

Money raised at Satur­day night’s an­nual ball will go to­wards the house, which pro­vides a home away from home for sick chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.
