Final arrangements for the Ball
We’re now finalising arrangements for the St Andrew’s Caledonian Charity Ball to be held at the Warsaw Marriott Hotel on Saturday 25 November 2017. The programme for the evening, which promises non-stop action and entertainment, can be found here.
Guest of Honour
We’re reliably informed that our Guest of Honour, the Great Chieftan o’ the Puddin Race, will shortly be departing Scotland on the way to Warsaw. On the evening of the Ball, the Guest of Honour will be piped into the Ball Room where a ‘haggis-fed Rustic’ will recite Robert Burns’ “Address to a Haggis”, always a popular highlight of the evening.
The ballad “Caledonia” a firm favourite with Ball goers, was written by Dougie MacLean who performs the song in the Youtube clip below:
Dig Deep for Charity
The net proceeds of the Ball go to childrens’ charities, currently Fundacja Iskierka and TPD Helenów. If you’re coming to the Ball please dig deep for the raffle and auction – we’d like to at least match, and, if we can, better our efforts from last year when we raised PLN 190,000 for charity.
