Driven by dedication and collaboration a dream was realized in less than a month. With 300 influential young professionals in attendance the first Lucky Ball had a successful launch, raising almost $30,000 for Fort York Food Bank. And they rose the bar on Thhursday March 1st, 2018 for the 6th Annual Lucky Ball taking place at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, 245 Queens Quay West.

February 2013 was a day in charity history, when a couple of donors (Scott Shallow of Brad Lamb Realty and Sennheiser) presented the Fort York Food Bank with a staggering $10,000 cheque. The Board could not be more grateful, yet also saw so much more potential in that sizable gift of money.

Fort York Food Bank (an agency of the Daily Bread Food Bank and Second Harvest), located at Dundas Street West and Bathurst Street, is a multi-service agency reconnecting people with our community. 95% of every donation to FYFB goes directly to programs that provide an integrated set of services assisting clients in a holistic manner. In a given month, FYFB helps approximately 1,200 of the most vulnerable members of our community; FYFB clients survive on an average of $3 a day after housing costs.

We wish to thank Trevor Guy for the invitation.
