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 2018 and 2019 contributed an astonishing amount of $24, 659.
This money will assist youths in times of crisis, providing housing, mental health services, parenting and family assistance and emergency relief.
Help us, help them. #gotg20
