What do you do when you are given $10,000 as a donation? Do you feel Lucky? Or do you think you can with help, triple your donation?
In February 2013, the Fort York Food Bank was given a $10,000 donation and rather than just use that money, the board thought they could leverage the $10,000 donation into something more.
One month later, with help from amazing corporate sponsors like CIBC, Molsons, Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene) and the $10,000 from the original donors The Brad Lamb Realty / Sennheiser, that donation morphed into the first annual Lucky Ball, a St. Patrick’s Day-themed party was born. 300 influential young professionals attended the first Lucky Ball, raising almost $30,000 for Fort York Food Bank.
After such success The Lucky Ball is back! The 2014 Lucky Ball will Celebrate the Spirit of St. Patrick’s Day at the 2nd Annual Lucky Ball on Thursday, 13 at the Revival Bar, 783 College St. with an Open Bar, Hors d’oeuvres, Great Music, All for a Great Cause with DJ: Brendan Canning (Broken Social Scene)
This year’s goal is for 500 guests to attend, which would raise approximately $50,000 for Fort York Food Bank. Raising $50,000 would cover almost 1/3rd of the food bank’s cash operating budget for 2014. We hope you would come out for such an amazing event.
