The Java St. Andrew Society (JSAS) was founded in 1919. The Society aims to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish here in Jakarta. From smaller gatherings for a wee swallie to ceremonious extravaganzas such as the annual JSAS Charity Ball we bring opportunities for everyone to raise their glasses and toast Bonnie Scotland. With a skirl o' the pipes and a swish o' the kilt we urge you to dree oot the inch as ye hae done the span.
A message from the Chieftain
The more we consider it, the harder it is to put it into words - awesome is the only word that really gets anywhere close. I am referring of course to the feat achieved by Scott Thompson (above flyer). Scott has completed his huge, world record-breaking challenge and raised more than Rp.6.6 billion for the four charities mentioned. He is a modest man and understandably now wants to focus on getting back to a normal life but it would not seem right for this page not to recognise his achievement. You are an inspiration Scott and obviously held in high regard by those you have chosen to assist. Well done! (sounds so inadequate).
Tickets are still ON SALE for this year's St Andrew's Ball on 28th November 2015. Get your orders and payments in quickly to ensure you don't miss out on what is promising to be a fantastic night (see below for details). Put together a table with friends, order a table and find friends to fill it, or book your seats and make friends with others at your table on the night. Regardless, get your order in now - last year was sold out and many were left disappointed.
The ball is shaping up to be a great night and we have a fantastic package for auction - are you a rugby fan? do you like Hong Kong? how about business class travel and luxury accommodation?........I think you probably get the picture. Come along and bid for this fantastic package, courtesy of Swire (holding company of Cathay Pacific), and at the same time do your bit to help some very worthy causes.
I have pleasure in announcing the latest addition to the night - our long term sponsors RIO have once again put up a fantastic door prize. Remember you've got to be in it to win it, so get your tickets for the ball and place your name card in the bowl at reception.......for the chance to win USD2,500 (with the same to be donated to the charity of your choice)
In addition there will be a raffle with the chance to win some wonderful prizes and assist worthy causes in the process..... a five course meal, free flow drinks and the best night of dancing in town (last year's broken dance floor surely proves that!)
We are working on the final details of the entertainment and a few surprises so come and join the party.
