The 8th annual Lucky Ball 2020 took place on Thursday, March 5, held at 2nd Floor Events at 461 King Street West – a beautiful venue, easy to get to by TTC near Spadina.

A really fun evening with all the proceeds from ticket sales going to Fort York Food Bank. Guests enjoyed the delicious hors d’oeuvre for everyone’s tastes and an open bar with a wide selection of drinks.  Silent Auction was extensive with sports memorabilia – signed jerseys, pictures, photos of musicians, jewelry and decorations.

The music provided by DJ Carl Allen created a party atmosphere, with the highlight of the Big Smoke Brass Band playing songs we love including a tribute to RUSH with song Tom Sawyer.  We all enjoyed wondering which popular song they’d be playing next! The Big Smoke Brass Band was a huge hit with the crowd – their dance moves and beat of their music got the crowd moving.

Lucky Ball 2020 was another fine evening of food, drinks and entertainment while fundraising for a wonderful cause – the Fort York Food Bank.  Congratulations to the organizing committee for a successful event!
