2009 theme: WOW

In 2009 the event booked out 6 weeks prior to the night (the quickest ever) and 765 guests attended. The 11 VIP tables to the event sold out 12 weeks pre the event.

WOW stood for White on White and was one of the dominant themes on the night in both the parade and with what guests wore to the event. Local models Rebecca Jones and Adam O'Connor were the faces for the event in 2009.
