Adrian Barich: Plenty of moments to treasure as WA digs deep for Telethon

Telethon was back to its very best this year.

As someone posted on social media, “We’re back with a bang, boom boom shake the room”.

The “room” this year was the mighty RAC Arena and when the milestone donation figure of $500 million was surpassed, a massive conga line broke out as the people of WA were thanked for their generous donations over the past 55 years.

Your local paper, whenever you want it.

It was a moment to treasure.

The most bizarre moment of the whole event was the 76-year-old man from Bull Creek who waltzed up to the Prime Minister in his Borat-inspired mankini.

I spoke with John Bradley and he said his mates had pledged $25,000 if he wore his highly unusual beachwear in front of the PM so, as he said, “what option did I have? I did it for the kids”.
