Home / Band News / 3rd Annual Tartan Ball



On Friday, November 7, 2008 the District hosted it’s 3rd Annual Tartan Ball at the downtown Raleigh Sheraton Hotel. The party was a tremendous success and because of band members, their families and all of our friends (especially members of the public safety community we serve) over $13,000 was raised!!!  Our sincere thanks to the Bagpipes and Drums of the Emerald Society, Chicago Police Department for honoring the Wake & District family with a rousing set of traditional and show pieces which wowed a crowd of more than 400 – their performace made Raleigh their kind of town.

Some tried and true friends were seen and some new ones were welcomed. Although the party suffered some “technical difficulties” we hope everyone enjoyed the themselves and we invite you back Friday, November 13, 2009 for our 4th Annual Tartan Ball at the Raleigh Sheraton Hotel.

Props to Jason Lane and Mike Bishop for running the show, Alan Armstrong for his piobreachd performance and the members of the District – for a job well done.
