The gala evening was held at the Wynnum Manly League Club before 300 attendees, with celebrations taking place well into the night.

Both ladies have been huge supporters of the club and worked tirelessly over the past few months, Miss Smith did not go home empty handed winning Miss Wynnum Manly Rugby League Charity award.

Judges Margaret Cork from the Wynnum Manly Juniors and State Member of Parliament for Capalaba Jim Elder said it was a very difficult decision, as both contestants excelled in all three categories.
