Burns Night preparations get underway in New York

Members of the American Scottish Foundation are being invited to celebrate Robert Burns with them.

Based in New York, they are looking for members and friends to join them on Friday, 19 January, as they celebrate ‘the Bard’ in association with the University Club.

The evening will begin with a reception and whisky tasting – together with silent auction. Guests will then be piped into dinner where a traditional Burns Supper will follow.

With Toasts to the Lads and the Lassies, the evening will conclude with Reels – and conclusion of the Silent Auction.

Tickets are available now, costing $225 for ASF members, $275 for non-members, and $350 for patrons. Visit www.americanscottishfoundation.org for more details.
