St. George’s Society of New York is a charity dedicated to enriching the quality of life for people in need through an established support system within the British and Commonwealth community of New York.
Fueled by a passionate membership community, we create a social outlet that cultivates a sense of belonging and celebrates our uniquely British roots, all while supporting our philanthropic purpose.
For nearly 250 years, St. George’s Society has provided care and comfort when it is needed most. We recognize that even the smallest acts of kindness can have a huge impact on people’s lives.
The English Ball is the most prestigious and important event in St. George’s Society of New York’s calendar with proceeds directly supporting its charitable programs.
Starting back in 1770 as a banquet to celebrate St. George, the patron saint of England, it has been held with rare exceptions every year since and is now established as the premier English social event in New York.
The British Bash, supported by the British Consulate-General in New York, celebrates the “Best of British in NYC” while raising vital funds for St. George's Society of New York.
The event is attended by over 350 vibrant professionals and the emphasis of the evening is on having fun while supporting a great cause. The British Bash has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The Telegraph and on the Fox Network.
