End to sense of dread
PERTH Demons will play a scratch match against South Fremantle at Lathlain Park this weekend, but the game will not be the only entertainment for the day.
Perth Demons bar and functions manager Ryan Keatley will say goodbye to his iconic dreadlocks as he surrenders them to charity for the World’s Greatest Shave.
Perth Demons business development manager Kelli Bott said punters would be asked during the quarter-time and half-time breakss to help shave Keatley’s head. Keatley will have sections of his hair shaved partly at quarter-time and half-time until the dreadlocks are all gone.
“The people who do it can be as crazy as they want, the funny part is going to be that Ryan has to serve behind the bar between each quarter,” Bott said.
Keatley said he could not wait for the big day to arrive.
“I’m aiming to raise $5000 and I’m currently sitting at $3084, so I’m hoping for a gold-coin entry to the scratch match game this week,” he said.
“All the proceeds will contribute to the World’s Greatest Shave.
“My $5000 will go towards a fulltime employee to undertake the important research needed to help find a cure.”
The match will take place at Lathlain Park on March 12 from 2pm.
“I’d love to show people how important this is to so many who are less fortunate than ourselves, who have been touched by leukaemia or some form of blood cancer or disorder,” Keatley said.
