LUCK! A great success

Wednesday, January 8, 2020


The Ottawa Arts Council is thrilled to announce that the 2019 edition of LUCK! was a great success raising $14,000 with the help of Presenting Sponsor Downtown Rideau BIA. This year’s event featured 57 donating artists representing the richness and diversity of Ottawa’s visual arts community. The atmosphere in the room was incredible as our draw ticket holders anxiously waited for their card to be chosen! 

This year’s event sold out quicker than previous years, and it featured variety and quality that was appreciated by everyone. You may have witnessed the excitement as ticket holders were frantically waiting for their card to be called as Global Public Affairs sponsored Countdown Clock ticked away.

The Council had a strong show of support from local businesses throughout the community. The registration table was sponsored by Julia Johnston, Re/Max Sales Representative, and Josée Ménard of The Mortgage Advisors. A revamped artist menu, sponsored by John Kirkwood Technology Consulting and Thyme & Again Creative Catering & Take Home Food Shop, helped ticket holders deliberate over their selections. Delicious food and beverages were provided by Coconut Lagoon Fine South Indian Cuisine and Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company and the event was recorded for prosperity by Videography Sponsor Lenz Studio.

As the evening wrapped up, lucky draw ticket holders had their artwork professionally packaged to bring home by the experts from Patrick Gordon Framing Studio.


Thank you to the contributing artist for their generous donations.
