On Friday 17th May 2019, the Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow held a Cabaret Night in aid of the Provincial Grand Master's nominated charity, Pancreatic Cancer Research. The event was held in the Masonic Hall in Wood Street and was very well attended, having sold out well before the evening.

The entertainment began with the fabulous Debbie Anne King performing a wide range of songs which highlighted her vocal talents and got the night off to a great start.

Next to entertain the packed hall was Robert T. Leonard who performed as Tom I Am, his tribute to Tom Jones. He quickly had the dancefloor full as everyone joined in with the well known classics and at times, most of the hall were on their feet. 

The raffle was then drawn including a special prize of a bottle of Grand Lodge Whisky, signed by the Grand Master Mason. There was also a Peddie Teddy (just visible in the picture above) donated by the Provincial Grand Master and a large range of other prizes which were generously donated by the brethren in attendance.

The final act of the evening was Robert McIntosh, performing as the King of Soul and Motown.

This was a great end to the night with the crowd once again filling the dancefloor and joining in with many of the songs.

The evening was organised by Brother Alan Duthie who is a member of the Board of Provincial Grand Stewards and a Past Master of Lodge Scotia No. 178.  The artists were all arranged with the assistance of Eddie McGillivray of Finest Talent Entertainment Agency and his assistance was most welcome. 

The evening made a total of £1525 which was presented to the Provincial Grand Master to add to the funds already raised for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

Our thanks are extended to Brother Duthie for all his hard work, to all who supported the event and to Lodge Alexandra No. 1282 for donating the cost of the hall rent for the evening.
