On Friday, MAXIM Australia celebrated its fourth birthday in style with a VIP cocktail party at Casablanca, Double Bay.

400 VIP guests attended including Anja Nissen winner of The Voice 2014, MAXIM Cover girl and Celebrity Apprentice star Gabi Grecko along with her husband Geoffrey Edelsten, singer Krystie Steve, sports star Anthony Mundine, singer/dancer Tim Omaji, international model Rob Evans, model Imogen Anthony, Parramatta Eels player Beau Champion, actor Axle Whitehead, actor and presenter Mike Goldman, MAXIM TV host James Kerley, MAXIM Australian Swimwear Model of the Year Casey Boonstra and MAXIM cover girl Sheridyn Fisher.

Guests danced and dined the night away as they enjoyed Patron Tequila Mojito and Margherita cocktails, Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa shots, Treasury Wines Estate wines and Zeven Lemon beer. We had our make-up done at the Revlon booth so we were ready for photos.

Guests were provided premium gift bags worth over $300 including a copy of the MAXIM August issue, Mercedes-Benz or Dunhill perfume, and selfie stick.

It was a fantastic night that Maxim, like its magazine and TV, are synonymous for.
