Robbie Burns Gala
On Saturday, January 21, 2012, The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts will be holding its first annual Robbie Burns Gala. A reception will be held at 6:30pm and a traditional roast beef dinner will follow at 7pm. Entertainment will be provided by the talented students and faculty of the College. Tickets are $100.00 per person with a $75.00 tax receipt. A complimentary shuttle service from Charlottetown to Summerside (and return!) will be provided. It will leave by the Wal-Mart by Pay Less Shoes at 5:30pm on the 21st.
This event is a fundraiser for the College. Do not miss out on this fantastic evening! It will be a night of great food, top notch entertainment and fabulous people! Events like this enable the College to provide educational programs in the Celtic Arts. Students come to the College to learn and grow in their chosen disciplines and carry on the Celtic traditions. The College is the only year round facility in North America to provide such programming. Come, support the College and have an amazing evening while you're at it!!!
If the lure of an evening spent soaking up all things Robbie Burns still isn't enough, then come for the auction as well (note: you must purchase a Burns Gala ticket to bid on the silent and live auction items)! The College of Piping Pipe Bands are holding a silent and live auction at the Burns gala. Some of the items up for grabs are golf packages, art and Toronto Maple Leaf tickets!!! That's right...hockey tickets! Come and bid in a live auction for an original six match up. The captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Dion Phaneuf, has kindly donated two tickets to a game on March 24th against the New York Rangers. Along with the tickets comes a signed hockey stick and picture of the Leafs captain. The live auction will take place after the main course but before dessert. The silent auction will close at the the end of the live auction. Don't miss out!
