In Support of Brisbane Youth Service
Gala on the Green was established in 2011 by a group of young professionals looking to give back to the community. They decided to support Brisbane Youth Service, to help other young people live a better life.
The funds raised at Gala on the Green 2017 enabled Brisbane Youth Service to create the Gala on the Green Smarten Up Education Grant Program, with 42 young people accessing this grant to help with purchasing equipment, paying school fees or buying uniforms.
