Kilted pub crawl to support the Scots' Charitable Society and the Charitable Irish Society
PLEDGES FOR CRAWLERS: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-angry-scotsmans-kilt-crawl-2014-pledges-tickets-12508578495
This September the Angry Scotsman, a collection of friends who are members of several local Scottish and Celtic charities, along with members of the British Consulate, are looking to have a bit fun while raising awareness and money for the mission of two fine charitable organizations; The Scots Charitable Society and The Charitable Irish Society.
Participants will crawl along a 1.7 mile route through Jamaica Plain stopping at each of our sponsor's establishments for refreshment, conviviality, and maybe even a brief pipe tune. Upon reaching the last stop and the Scots Charitable Society's friend and patron, The Haven, each entrant who has successfully stopped at every establishment will receive an Angry Scotsman "Bag o' Swag" for their heroic efforts and an opportunity to win the grand prize for most pledges
In honor of the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, on Saturday afternoon, the 13th of September, we hope to have at least two dozen hearty souls exhibit true feats of strength and endurance by engaging in the First Annual Kilt Crawl "J.P. or Bust"
The kilt crawl is being organized by members of the following charitable and cultural organizations.
About the Scots Charitable Society
Founded in 1657, The Scots' Charitable Society is the oldest charitable organization still existing in the Western Hemisphere. The Society awards undergraduate scholarships to the Scottish-American community and provides relief to individuals and Scots' families in need.
The Society also seeks to promote Scottish and Celtic heritage through education, participation in highland games, parades and other cultural events throughout the Greater Boston area. http://scots-charitable.org/about-2/
About The Charitable Irish Society
The Charitable Irish Society, started in 1737 in Boston by Irish immigrants who had successfully made that city their home, was formed to assist other newly arrived Irish immigrants in settling in and assimilating into a new city and new country. It is the oldest Irish society in both Americas and has had a rich history for over two and a half centuries. http://www.charitableirishsociety.org/About
