               IOOF Sonora's Robert Burns Night! 

A celebration of Scottish culture and Scottish poet Robert Burns, a Robert Burns Night is a night to remember! This is a black suit or Highland attire event, and will be held at the gorgeous Hurst Ranch indoor venue.  

Guests will enjoy a catered Scottish meal, bagpipes and fiddles, a little of Burns' poetry, toasts and speeches, and of course, drams of Scotch! Bear Tent Brewing Company and Hurst Ranch Wine will also be served, and silent auction items will be available.  

Tickets are available now on the online store. ALL proceeds of the dinner will be put into the Sonora Odd Fellows Foundation, which is used to provide services to Tuolumne County foster children, sick, and the elderly.

 Burns Supper FAQs: 
 What does black suit/highland attire mean? What should I wear? 
 Gents should wear kilts or dark suits (not tuxedos!) Cocktail attire is appropriate; ladies are encouraged to include plaid   accessories, such as a sash. 

 What happens at a Burns Supper?
 Guests can expect a warm greeting & bagpipe music, and they'll find the bar stocked and ready to sell Hurst Ranch wine and   Bear Tent Brewery beer.  Scotch is a big part of a Burns Supper, and donations will be accepted for drams. There is a set order of events at a Burns Supper, which  includes different speakers throughout the night, Burns works, including an ode to the haggis (it's ceremonial, you don't have to eat it unless you want to!), and many fun toasts.  A full Scottish dinner will be  provided, silent auction items will be available, and everyone takes pictures and has a great time! Dinner starts promptly at 6 p.m., so come early for cocktail hour!
