Josh Kennedy surprises biggest fan on birthday


    Bianca wanted to make her son Luca’s 12th birthday extra special, so she jumped on to Pickstar in search of a West Coast Eagles champion that would make it a day to remember.

    The mother of three quickly navigated the PickStar marketplace of more than 1,300 sports stars and found that West Coast Star Josh Kennedy was available for fan experiences. Bianca submitted a budget and a brief to the Pickstar team, and to her delight, Josh had accepted the opportunity by the very next day.

    Bianca was thrilled and was confident Josh was going to help give Luca the best birthday present of his life.


      Luca and his family were at their local park in Byford celebrating his birthday when Josh casually arrived, to the amazement of the 12-year-old. Luca was ecstatic to have his footballing hero spend time with him on his birthday.

      The pair spent time together kicking the football and Luca impressed Josh with his skills with the Sherrin.

      Bianca was thrilled and thought the birthday was a huge success.

      Josh was amazing, he was very involved and had a great kick session. He was engaging in conversation with everyone and I’m so impressed with how the day went,” she said.
