Every year the Duke (1225 Queen St. East in Toronto), raises money for a worthy charity called Abuse Hurts. There will be a toy drive, the 12th sponsored by The Duke, a raffle table, 50/50 draws, silent auction and karaoke with Sweet Daddy Siki. Richard will be “celebrity” bartending from 3:30 pm to 7 pm-ish to help them out. “Come down and visit me… but only order draft! I haven’t bartended in decades and can’t remember how to make the fancy cocktails!”
Donations of new, unwrapped toys for all ages are welcome. Gifts and gift cards can help out give tweens and teens as well as Moms and Dads. It’ll be a great day for a great cause. Last year they pulled together an outside only event and collected $12,000 worth of toys. The City recognized The Duke’s efforts with a Covid Hero Award.
