Lucky’s Pub Fights Hunger in East Providence & Seekonk


On December 9, Lucky’s Pub in East Providence held a “Guest Bartender” fundraising event to raise money to combat food uncertainty in East Providence and Seekonk. It was a football Sunday afternoon, and the bar was filled with friends of volunteer bartenders Mike Tortolani & Mike Benevides, who tended bar for eight hours while donating all tips to two local food banks. In addition, Lucky’s Pub donated 20% of all receipts for the afternoon to the fundraiser, which raised a final donation of $5,200.00 from the event. This was the second annual such event, and Billy Lewis, the proprietor of Lucky’s Pub, pronounced the fundraiser a success. We are fortunate to have such community-minded businessmen taking an active role in helping our neighbors in need. On behalf of the families you are helping to feed, we say “Thank You”.
