Making spirits brighter this holiday season, the Kandy Kane Ball is the year's most anticipated holiday gala and toy drive. Historically held at Joe's in Chicago over the past two decades, this fun and festive annual event has a cult-like following!

The Kandy Kane Ball is back and returning to Cleveland's most popular rooftop, Truss Event Venue, located in Ohio City. Prepare for an evening filled with glamour, excitement, and unrivaled views of the city skyline, all while giving back to our local community. 

“Grinchmas” is this year’s theme and we're decking the halls with whimsical who-ville décor, holiday trees from Petitti Garden Centers, and plenty of photo ops from Sugar Booth with our holiday grouch

An open bar with signature cocktails by Tito's, beer by Great Lakes, hors d'oeuvres by Truss, and a live band, The Avenue, by CLE Music Group will keep you buzzing all night long. Enjoy a delicious treat from Jack Frost Donuts. 

While the theme changes year to year, the mission remains the same: to get toys into the hands of as many underprivileged kids as possible. All guests of the party are asked to bring a toy valued at $20 to donate. After the event, while you're dreaming of dancing sugar plums, sleepless elves will be busy making sure all toys get distributed the next morning at St. Malachi during a pizza party with Santa!

Spread the holiday cheer and join the fun of Grinchmas festivities with our inspired who-ville gala at this year’s Kandy Kane Ball! Truss is rarely open to the public, so this is sure to be a sellout evening. Join us and make a difference this holiday season!


COMPLIMENTARY VALET with your ticket purchase. 

ALL GUESTS: All guests are required to bring a toy donation as part of their ticket entry or make a financial donation of $25 or more to go towards a toy purchase.



Indulge in delightful holiday treats, sip on signature cocktails, and dance the night away at our annual Kandy Kane Ball holiday gala and toy drive. As the Grinch's heart grows three sizes, so will our impact on our local toy drive donation to St. Malachi!
