2021 Gala Organizing Committee

The Mayor’s Yellow Tie Gala takes more than 2,000 hours to plan and requires the dedication of a large crew of people to pull together and host Westfield’s most prominent charity fundraiser.

A big thank you to everyone listed below (and their spouses or partners for supporting them). The Westfield Youth Assistance Program is the State’s leading program because of our solid volunteers and committed residents and friends.
