According to Morris, "This event brings together so many wonderfully generous people and owes its success to the passionate and selfless devotion of Elyse Walker." One of the evening's highlights was a runway fashion show. All of the clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories were from Elyse Walker and Elyse Walker Men. Brunello Cucinelli, Valentino R.E.D. and Stella McCartney provided crowd-pleasing shows with numerous celebrity models.

Tere stated, "As a charity auctioneer, you never know what to expect, especially during such an ecumenically challenging year. The support for the Pink Party gives us all HOPE, that no matter what, we are dedicated to finding a cure for cancer so no person has to hear three words ‘you have cancer’!" She added, "I think it's really important that everyone still support charity events even when the economy is dreadful...if we don't...who will!"

DJ Samantha Ronson

Many well-known celebrities attended the event, co-hosted by Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Garner. Tere Morris stated that, "In addition to the supporters and sponsors, the event's success can once again be attributed to the executive producer of the event, JL Pomeroy of The jLINE Group." Entertainment included mini-dressed 'go-go' girls and hip-hop male dancers with pulsating dance music spun by DJ, Samantha Ronson best GF of Lindsey Lohan. "The eclectic crowd was kept happy with free-flowing Vodka martinis. It was a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful event and for such a good cause. I look forward to supporting Pink Party® '09", said Tere.
