NUGAS Victoria to hold annual Gala Ball in Melbourne


Written by Co-Presidents Billy Battista and Marissa Robotis

On Friday, September 1, the National Union of Greek Australian Students Victoria (NUGAS) will hold their annual Gala Ball at the Pullman Albert Park.

This is an opportunity for Greek-Australian youth to come together, put their dancing shoes on and celebrate the biggest night on the university Greek social calendar.

As the only organisation still operating under the renowned NUGAS name, NUGAS Victoria continues to be a proud and established organisation of over 50 years, and remains a strong, active and thriving not-for-profit student social and cultural organisation.

They are one of the most active groups of Greek-Australian and Philhellenic youth that support the Greek community, spread Greek culture and advocate for Greek education in Victoria.

Greek-Australian youth will come together for a night of dancing.

Whilst the event is hosted by NUGAS, it wouldn’t be a night of true Greek hospitality if they didn’t extend the ‘filotimo’ spirit to everyone. They are welcoming all students and friends from all backgrounds, institutions and universities to attend, just as long as they are willing to display their best ‘zeimbekika’ and ‘tsiftitelia’ moves.

NUGAS will continue to maintain the best elements of all their past Balls but they have a few surprises in store, so there is plenty for guests to get excited about.

NUGAS Victoria continues to be a proud and established organisation of over 50 years.

The night will commence in style with drinks on arrival followed by a three-course curated meal, accompanied by beer, wine, champagne and soft drink all night.

The night will continue with live Greek entertainment, led by Con and Thomas Nicolopoulos throughout the night, while after the Ball there will be an exclusive after party for all guests.
