Sim School of Highland Dance
2019 Tartan Gala
April 6, 2019
Jet Aircraft Museum
#2, 2465 Aviation Lane, London
We had an amazing evening at this exciting new venue!! Dinner was catered by award winning chef, David Grassie, and The Sticky Pudding Catering Company
Over the past few years, we have hosted a Tartan Gala, to raise money to support a variety of highland dance activities, including support of local highland dance competitions, offsetting competition and travel costs for our competitive dancers, sponsorship of the Scotdance Canada Championship Series, and giving back to our community.
Our Tartan Gala included dinner, door prizes and a fantastic silent auction! The entertainment for the evening featured the Stratford Police Pipes and Drums, and performances by Sim School of Highland Dance.
The venue provides select Canadian Forces jet aircraft static displays. In addition, were pleased to host the Lest We Forget Military Museum who provided a collection of military memorabilia and uniforms..
Money raised from this years event will help support local competitions in our community; assist us in hosting a Dance Workshop for dancers of all ages and abilities; and, will help to offset competition fees, and costs associated with travel to Scotland in the summer of 2019 for a team of competitive dancers from Sim School of Highland Dance!
An event like this doesn't come together without the amazing support of our dance families, friends and community!
We are firm believers that we all have a responsibility to give back to our community. A special thanks to the following sponsors that have contributed resources to help us cover costs to have a group of veterans attend our event:
