One becomes two-tu
THE idea to walk from Fremantle to West Leederville in a tutu started out as a casual bet between two footy fans rooting for opposing teams.
As far back as October last year, Danny Psaros was so confident his team would secure a spot in the finals that he accepted a challenge set down by friend and fellow football fanatic Alan Pavisich.
The bet hinged on whether the West Coast Eagles would make the AFL finals.
As excitement built around the Eagles’ stellar season, the bet took on a much more significant purpose, with both men raising money for children’s cancer charity Redkite. It all culminated last week, with more than $86,000 raised.
Mr Psaros joined Mr Pavisich in tutu attire because he was blown away by the support the community had given.
“We initially aimed for $20,000, but we quickly had to lift the bar. Then when we got to $60,000, I said to my team, ‘if we can rustle up another $25,000 from our trades and suppliers, I’ll wear the skirt as well’,” Mr Psaros said.
“We also managed to raise $800 on the day. People were throwing money at us!”
