Dear Friend of the Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association:
The Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association, a non-profit (c)(3) group, will host their 56th Annual Heather Tartan Ball & Silent Auction on November 5, 2022 at the Seattle Latvian Cultural Center in Seattle, Washington. This event is an important fundraiser that provides key support for our defining program, the Annual Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games and Clan Gathering, the sixth oldest Gathering of its kind in the United States.
Our Games are growing substantially each year and we are looking forward to another year of participation by hundreds of pipers, dancers, drummers, athletes, harpists, pipe bands and Clansmen, and all the color, pageantry and excitement they bring with them! The Games will be held again at the Enumclaw Expo Center in Enumclaw on July 22 and 23, 2023.
After cancelling the Games for two years due to the pandemic a donation to the Heather Tartan Ball & Silent Auction will be crucial in helping to ensure that our Annual Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games & Clan Gathering will continue and be an even bigger success than in previous years. Please take a moment to consider what you could give in support of this event. A procurement form is enclosed with this letter to make donating simple and quick. Donations from companies, organizations and/or individuals help to make our non-profit, all-volunteer, self-supporting event possible. In return for your generous gift, you will be highlighted in our auction program and other materials related to the event, which will be seen by more than 250 guests who are expected to attend.
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will donate to this very worthwhile Association whose aim is to perpetuate the Scottish arts of piping, drumming, dancing, harping and athletics in the Pacific Northwest!

Due to the CoVid-19 pandemic and the logistics of sponsoring an international event the 2020 and 2021 PNW Scottish Highland Games and Clan Gathering were cancelled. We are continuing to solicit donations to help us defray our operating costs of the past two years which included but were not limited to internet, phone, etc. and our biggest expense multiple storerooms where the “Games” are stored. This journey has been a struggle but with your help we can navigate and survive these unprecedented times and go into the future solvent and whole! YOU are appreciated. Thank you!
