Where else can everyone wear a skirt, eat, drink, dance and be merry? Our annual St Andrew’s Ball of course!
This year we will be holding our 140th Ball on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 and once again it will be held at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Pleasanton at the Club.
The ticket price of $85 for this fun-filled evening includes a Three Course Dinner and a very generous Glass of Wine. LIVE Music will be provided by “Max Cruise”, who will have you up dancing to Classic Rock, Chart hits, Old School R’n’B, Motown and a whole lot more. What would a St Andrew’s Ball be without a bit of Scottish Culture? You will not be disappointed, you will be entertained by the amazing Prince Charles Pipe Band, watch some talented Scottish Dancers and join us for a Cèilidh! Don’t worry if you are a novice, our caller will talk you through our traditional Scottish dances, so we can all join in to a “Dashing White Sergeant” or a “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)
A limited number of discounted rooms at the hotel have been reserved for the night, for guests of the St Andrew’s Ball. This special rate will be available until October 20thor until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first. If you would like to purchase accommodation for the night of the Ball, please go to the Doubletree group site for further information http://doubletree.hilton.com/en/dt/groups/personalized/P/PLEPCDT-SAS-20181110/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 have both couples and singles of both sexes coming to our Ball and non-members are very welcome. This event is not suitable for children.
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 us using the contact tab above, Codes are not transferable and can only be used once.
