We believe authentic people make a great team.

Our founder, Alyssa Gallion, started Celebrate for Good after her mother passed away from Breast Cancer. At that moment, she realized that the most important thing in life wasn't about collecting "stuff" but about collecting the moments you share with those you love. That is why experiences are so important to us and why we strive to make a world where people give experiences instead of material possessions.

Since our founding in 2016, we have added the folks below to our roster. To say our team is the best, is an understatement.  From professional videographers and photographers, to event curators and world renowned private chefs: we believe that creating an authentic team is just as important as creating an authentic experience for you and those you love. Check out the faces behind Celebrate for Good, who are collectively working to change the way the world celebrates.

I joined the Celebrate for Good team to be apart of a meaningful mission and to involve myself in a business that that gives back. It also offers me an opportunity to connect with others in my community — something I have been looking for.
