When it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, it’s all about good times with good friends, perhaps by drinking green or not-so-green beer. What else can top that?

Taking place at Revival Bar on College Street to a house full of partygoers dressed in green, this 2nd annual Lucky Ball was probably the best way to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in Toronto last week because it pretty much had it all: open bar, hors d’oeuvres, great party vibe with tunes directed by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning, a swag bag, and even a $10 taxi chit.

In addition to all of the above for the reasonable ticket price of $100, all 100% of the proceeds go in support of this multi-service local food bank that aims to reconnect people with their community. Commendable job by the Lucky Ball event committee.

Be sure to watch for Lucky Ball in 2015 to do St. Patrick’s Day the charitable way!

The mission is to work with partners who share our vision by:

  • Feeding the hungry – providing basic food requirements for individuals and families in need.
  • Helping people get on track – providing counseling and training to help people find jobs, safe housing and appropriate social and community programs
