Video: We recap an evening spent celebrating our Denizen Heroes

It was in the spirit of revelry and with a generous dose of black-tie glamour that we all packed into Shed 10 last Thursday night to celebrate our 2018 Denizen Heroes. Women in flawless finery and jaw-dropping threads, and men looking as suave as a Fred Astaire film celebrated with gusto, four individuals who have been striving (and succeeding) to help the community in their own ways.

Delicious Chivas cocktails like the Chivas Collins and Signature X, kept every whistle wet, while those preferring to opt for a more pared back concoction, sipped delicious drops of Chivas’ 18 Yr and Ultis whisky, neat. Flutes of Perrier-Jouët champagne served on trays were also distributed to the jovial crowd.

Following the formalities, where our deserving Heroes received their awards, The Sweet Mix Kids drew us to the dancefloor in droves, spinning their crowd-pleasing tunes until it was time to depart, everyone thoroughly happy and exhaustively entertained.

Until next year…
