Outlandish Gatherings 2015 Fundraiser #1

Help us raise funds for the 2015 Outlandish Gathering in Quebec City!

Outlanders, we need your help! There is a tremendous amount of planning for such a huge event. Regular registration closed on December 15th 2014 with over 200 members (you may still register if you haven’t already, so long as there are spots left!). Aside from contracts with hotels, cocktail menus, contracts with the Festival planners and reservations for particular activities, we have three guests to pay for: the Outlander set’s Gaelic consultant Àdhamh O’Broin and his wife, and our own fantastic piper, Elias Alexander.

The registration fees that we’ve amassed so far are a great help, but in order to defray event costs, we need you!

This is one of many fundraisers that will take place in the coming months. Even if you are not attending the event, please help us raise funds by making a contribution. We have lots of great prizes up for grabs to those who donate! A total of twelve (12) scarves will be given away, selected by random from the names of contributors as a thank you for donations. You can increase the number of times your name appears in the drawing–once, five times, or ten times, by increasing your contribution.

Our Goal for Fundraiser #1: $250.00
Your total donations: $505.00


Fundraiser #1 –  January 21th – February 7th

  1. I can not attend your wonderful event this year but I would like to help others to enjoy. Can I send Karen a check for raffle tickets?

    1. You can pay Paypal. It’s verified and safe. But if you don’t trust it, and if she’s ok with it, I think it can be arranged! 🙂
