On Friday, September 1st, 2023, the grandiose NUGAS Gala Ball made its triumphant return to the opulent 5-star Pullman Albert Park Melbourne Grand Ballroom. This sold-out extravaganza, meticulously orchestrated by the dedicated committee of the National Union of Greek Australian Students, unquestionably stands as the most monumental and prosperous Greek-Australian university student event nationwide.
A staggering assemblage of over 700 guests graced the Pullman's luxurious confines, embarking on a night of opulence replete with sumptuous cuisine, free-flowing libations, and performances by Australia's A-list entertainers.
This resounding success owes its gratitude to the unwavering generosity of our esteemed sponsors: Next Generation Events, Pronia, Bank of Sydney, Directed Group, Korres, Redbull, Thematikos, Moray Agnew Lawyers, Amethyst Wedding and Events Décor, NP Events, and Kabinetz.
The electrifying live entertainment ensemble that took center stage that night was unparalleled. Melbourne's most revered Greek musicians harmonized alongside the city's elite club DJs, Kosta Nico and Thomas Nico, with the charismatic MC George Ross presiding over the festivities, creating an unparalleled entertainment extravaganza under one roof.
But the celebration did not end there, an all-inclusive complimentary afterparty beckoned at Miss Ms Collins Nightclub, extending the revelry into the early hours.
The 2023 NUGAS Committee extends its heartfelt gratitude to our partner organizations and all those who contributed to the continuous success of the NUGAS organization. We eagerly anticipate your presence at our forthcoming events, where we shall continue to celebrate and uphold our rich Greek-Australian heritage.
