Noteworthy New Yorkers: The American-Scottish Foundation

Robert Burns has been quoted as saying, “There is no such uncertainty as a sure thing.”

Well, one thing for sure is that on January 18, 2013, The American-Scottish Foundation is having its 18th Burns Night Gala Celebration.

 

 

This fundraising event will begin with a reception, a whisky tasting of Bowmore and Glen Garloch Single Malts, and all of this will be presented by David McNicoll, The Brand Ambassador for Fine Whiskies at Campari.  Mr. McNicoll will also be serving as the master of ceremonies for the rest of the evening’s events.

After this tasting, guests will be joyfully piped into supper where a traditional Burns Night Dinner will be served.  Then orator Kenneth C. Donnelly will be introduced and will present Burn’s “Address to a Haggis.”  In addition, there will be musical entertainment from Pipe Major Andy Hamilton of The New York Metro Pipe Band and vocalists Maureen McMullen and Atlantic Seaway will also perform.

If you want a fun, educational and exciting evening out, while helping to support the mission of The American-Scottish Foundation to strengthen the ties between individuals, institutions and businesses of Scotland the The United States then click HERE and buy a ticket!

      Ahh, I can imagine! We have small venue spaces in NYC, but there is such a myriad of events to choose from, it’s usually not too bad!

  3. I wish I’d known about this sooner – before I made other plans for tonight (and in time to rent black tie). Maybe next year! It’s been too long since I had haggis. :)
