Angus MacKenzie SOAR to Scotland Grant

Collected: $2,965.00
Goal: $5,000.00
The Executive Board considered many ideas and determined the Angus MacKenzie “Soar to Scotland ” Grant is a fitting remembrance to a man who meant so much to the community of Highland dance around the world. Our goal is to continue to offer the Grant long into the future so Angus and his legacy are always remembered.
