Channel Seven extended an invitation to all staff, former management, clients, VIPs and the TVW Reunion Committee to commemorate the golden anniversary of television in Western Australia.
The venue was Central Park in the heart of the city of Perth.
Guests walked the red carpet to a lavish cocktail party with a colourful floorshow and music provided by an Abba tribute band.
