Spec­ta­tors chill out as suits shiver

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South-east Metro -

FLIP­PERS, gog­gles, board­ies and flota­tion rings were ap­pro­pri­ate at­tire for two Vic­to­ria Park men we usu­ally only see dressed in suit and tie, when they ac­cepted the global Ice Bucket Chal­lenge craze last week.

Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan and act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta at­tracted quite a crowd as they gath­ered at the pop-up seat­ing ad­ja­cent to Café Gelato on Al­bany High­way for the spec­ta­cle.

Nom­i­nated by café owner Omeed Me­hdi, the pair have since nom­i­nated Crown Re­sorts chief ex­ec­u­tive Barry Fel­stead and Crown Perth le­gal man­ager Joshua Preston to follow suit.

“You can prob­a­bly tell by our re­ac­tions that the wa­ter was cold enough to put hairs on your chest!” Mr Vaughan said. “It is my un­der­stand­ing that Café Gelato will be donat­ing $100 and the Town $150.”
