175th Annual Feast of the Haggis – VIRTUAL

November 30, 2020 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


It’s our great pleasure to invite you to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of Chicago Scots in a spectacular fashion. Join us as we gather virtually to salute our Scottish heritage and the vital work we do at Caledonia Senior Living and Memory Care.

Attendees will enjoy a taste of the pomp and circumstance of our traditional Feast of the Haggis and journey to hear the voices of heroes from our past tell the astonishing story of Chicago Scots.

Gary Maclean, the National Chef of Scotland, has curated our Feast in a Box – a Scottish hamper available for purchase in advance of the event. Create your own Feast in your home using his recipes and specialty ingredients included in the hamper or if you prefer use them to add the perfect Scottish flair to a meal this holiday season. Cook along with Chef Gary as he prepares two of the courses the afternoon of The Feast. To guarantee receipt by November 30th please purchase by end of business on Friday, November 13th.

You will also hear inspiring congratulatory messages from other leading Scots and meet our accomplished 175th Anniversary Honorees.

With your support our evening will be a great success. A generous anonymous donor will match every gift donated online during our event up to $50,000. Your support will be appreciated and directly benefit our important work in elder care at Caledonia Senior Living.

Register online and answer what Scottish identity means to you (100 words or less) to enter a raffle for a $100 gift certificate to The Scotland Shop and a copy of Chef Gary Maclean’s cook book. Winner must be present Nov. 30.

Put on your tartan and help celebrate the heroes and values that shaped our first 175 years and the heroes among us today. We look forward to seeing you on Nov. 30.
