Robert Burns Supper
On Saturday, January 25, 2014, The Caledonian Society of Arizona will be celebrating the birth date of Scotland's own national poet, Robert Burns.
Once a year, a special event takes place around the world. It's been part of Scottish culture for over 200 years where men and women dress up formally to meet with descendents and lovers of Scotland, for a gastro-literary celebration of the life and works of the poet Robert Burns. It is an event that transcends time, geographical borders, political and religious beliefs, to bring people together in a traditional Scottish feast.
Men are encouraged to wear kilts & jackets, trews, tuxedos, suits or blazer with a tartan tie, while women don evening dresses with tartan sashes or shawls, tartan skirts with blouse or sweater.
The Caledonian Society is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote Scottish culture through art, education and athletics. Each year the Society grants scholarships to aspiring and professional Highland athletes, musicians and dancers alike during what is their most successful fundraiser of the year: The Arizona Scottish Highland Games & Clan Gathering. Given the athletic component in celebrating the culture, and the desire to reach out in the community as a civic organization for this past half century, this year, the Society has partnered with Special Olympics | Arizona Chapter and a portion of the evening's proceeds will benefit the athletes of their organization.
The evening's program includes:
Highest quality, traditional Scottish menu
Including a toast to, and proper service of the Haggis
Imported fine Scottish beer and whisky
Full bar and wine available
Live band - Scottish tunes, songs and Highland Dancers
Lovely ballroom setting and location
