It was Sandok Production’s second foray into organising a community event. The Hollywood Red Carpet Night, held 16 March at the Millennium Reception Centre, saw the ladies and gents all glammed up in elegant gowns and suits, some even looking their Hollywood best. Zeny Lapeña, dressed as Elizabeth Taylor Queen of the Nile, husband Bert Lapeña as Jake Gyllenhaal Prince of Persia, and Annie Estavilla-Maullin as Joan Collins were named Stars of the Night.
Sandok Production is composed of Susan Rodriguez, Chito Javier, both of who were the brainchild of the dinner-dance, Teresa Gregorio, Emmy Du-lake, and George Gregorio. It is a private non-profit organisation which aims to create and produce events which promote Philippine tourism, heritage, history, and culture. These events are multicultural in nature to harmonise socio-cultural aspects of the Filipino-Australian culture into the multicultural Australian society. It earlier organised a group singing competition during the Feast of San Lorenzo Ruiz. The group will also be involved in organising events for the Philippine Independence celebration, in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate.
