The East of Scotland dinner has become one of the largest and “must attend” events in the East of Scotland construction industry calendar, and this year’s dinner held at the prestigious Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa in Edinburgh did not disappoint.
Going all out to ensure the continued growth of the event our guest numbers were up on previous years. The Live at the Lighthouse comedy themed entertainment started with our chairman being welcomed on to stage as “Mr. Big Stuff, Jean Knight” then our 460 guests enjoyed an exquisite three course meal expertly prepared by Executive Chef Craig Hart.
Our thanks to our main dinner sponsor for their continued sponsorship of the East of Scotland Branch dinner (SIG Construction Accessories – Vaughan Taylor) and also the beautiful East of Scotland Girls (Sponsored by Saint-Gobain – Stuart McKill) who were selling raffle tickets, big bang balloons (Sponsored By Saint-Gobain – Stuart McKill) and guess the time of the first goal tickets for the England vs Scotland football game being held on the 18th of November.(Sponsored By Keyline – Gary Miller),
The evening concluded with a standing ovation for our guest speakers, Canadian and Irish-Iranian stand-up comedians, Katherine Ryan and Patrick Monahan.
A huge thank you to all our table hosts and guests whose behaviour was exemplary as always and to Becci O’Meara and all the staff at the Sheraton Grand Hotel for their impeccable service.
A hugely successful night raising £20,000.00!
