Gala on the Green was established in Australia in 2011 and since then has raised over $130,000 for charity. Gala on the Green made its international debut in London in 2015, which proved a massive success, raising over £25,000 in two years for youth charities. For the second year running, the committee has chosen to partner with Alone in London, a youth homeless charity.
The committee is made up of ten young professionals, who come from a range of industries, from finance, to legal, to media, to medical and who all share a passion for wanting to make a difference in the community.

This is a black tie gala like no other – expect delicious local street food, energetic live bands and free flowing drinks throughout the night.
This is a great chance to don your tuxes and finest evening gowns with your friends and to meet other like-minded young professionals.

This year’s committee consists of 10 young professionals from all around the world who work in a range of industries, coming together to make a difference in the community.
Ali is one of the founding members of the Gala movement.
By day, she is a well-respected events professional with over 9 years in the industry. By night, she is Abigail. A rosè-loving, last girl standing, tropical cyclone.
Be sure to stick close to Ali at this year’s event and you’re in for a whirlwind adventure.
This Aussie physio import might have some impressive hand skills, but none more so than pouring the perfect beer. After working in events and bars during university, ensuring everyone is well watered at a party is his life forte.
His extraordinary Pilates skills bolster his dance floor moves and all challengers are welcome. But prepare to chase away.
27 year old, non-smoking Aquarian who loves pizza and Balls. Black tie balls. Soph moved to London from Australia for the weather and is yet to be disappointed.
Aptly nicknamed Baby Giraffe, her talents lie outside the realms of champagne pouring instead preferring to put her limbs to use dominating the dfloor.
Kasia is our token Canadian trying to save the NHS. She leads major health care transformations across the country - which has versed her well in complex planning (a useful skill for Gala!)
In her spare time, you can find Kasia ripping any dance floor close to her. Her favourite dances include lindy hop and blues. Skiing in the alps is a close parity.
Graham is the Scottish expat who joined the committee in 2016. His notable contribution last year was convincing a handsome kilted Scotsman to be auctioned to the highest bidder only to be disappointed when he got out-bidded!
When not planning Gala he can be found out and about in Clapham or Fulham with a Hendricks and tonic in hand.
A relatively fresh newcomer to London, Jess originally hails from Brisbane, Australia.
Professionally: Organisational change consulting. Personally: Road trips, board games, and sipping the foam off a chocolate dusted cappuccino.
Having previously a guest at the Gala, Jess is relishing the opportunity to be on the organising side this year, and can’t wait to see how it all unfolds in 2017!
Chris was born in Zimbabwe and moved to London via Tasmania in 2013. After buying a blue suit and pink tie he fell into the world of law; however, he still does his best work on the cricket pitch.
Despite his passion for bringing parties together nothing beats Chris’s life obsession for exploring lonely beaches under the sun, he always has time for a laugh with the lads.
Roisin joins us all the way from Ireland. If Sporty Spice and Crazy Spice had a little sister, this would be her.
A gastric queen often seen faffing around with Hestonesque sharing plates...hold the nitro please...
She can be found day or night planning her next escape from busy London, playing sports, talking tech, drinking whisky or all at once, typically on the back nine.
