Where else can everyone wear a skirt, Eat, Drink, Dance and be Merry?
This is a fun filled evening of Scottish Culture, Music and Dance! The ticket price of $80 includes a Three course dinner and a very generous glass of wine. You will be entertained by the amazing Prince Charles Pipe Band, watch some talented Scottish Dancers and join us for a Ceilidh! LIVE Music will be provided by “Max Cruise”. We will have a caller for the more traditional dances so even if you are a novice, we will soon having you joining in to a “Dashing White Sergeant” or Strip the Willow”. If you wish a break from the dancing, we will have our Scottish pub, “The Scots Bar” – where you will be able to purchase a wee dram, or whatever beverage takes your fancy (all bars accept cash only)
There is also a discount of $10 for members of good standing. A unique code is required for the member discount, if you are a member of good standing and have not yet received your discount code, please contact Joyce at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A limited number of rooms are available to St Andrew’s Ball guests at a discounted rate at the Doubletree on the night of our event. Please use the Doubletree group site for further information at http://doubletree.hilton.com/en/dt/groups/personalized/P/PLEPCDT-OAK-20171111/index.jhtml
Dress code is evening wear, we have a lot of ladies come in long dresses, and a fair number in cocktail dresses, it varies from year to year. Men can come in a suit and tie, and most of our Scottish lads wear their own kilts and relish the opportunity to bare their knees! We love to see guests wearing a kilt for the first time and they can be easily rented in San Francisco (eg from http://wmglenusa.com) – and you don’t have to be Scottish to wear one! Usually the “Prince Charlie” style is worn. We will have many traditional dances and modern dances, which don’t need a partner to dance with and we have a caller for all the traditional dances so novices are welcome! We have both couples and singles of both sexes coming. Non-members are very welcome to come to the ball. This event is not suitable for children.
