- A signed pair of photographic studies of the magnificent Kelpie sculptures, by their creator Andy Scott - 30"x24".

- A custom suit from Brooks Brothers. An opportunity to tailor a suit that in truly one-of-a-kind. Choose from over 1,500 of the world's finest fabrics, specially hand-selected by Brooks Brothers team of designers, and craft a suit individualized in both fit and style.

And more, as details are finalised...

The live and silent auctions offer truly unique experiences and gifts: from golf at some of the leading courses both here and in Scotland, to luggage, trips, jewelry and art. We are grateful to all who are donating and helping make the evening a success.

The Wallace Award® recognizes the success of Scots, those of Scottish descent and Americans as well as Canadians, who have been instrumental in contributing to the well-being of both countries.

The evening benefits the ongoing work of the Foundation and allows ASF to further our mission of strengthening ties between Scotland and the United States through the pursuit of contemporary social, cultural, educational and business activities. It is the most significant event for the ASF during the year and the selection of Honorees is done with much thought and deliberation.
