Save Veronica.org is an organization dedicated to fighting for the rights of a 2-year old girl and her adoptive family who live on James Island. Based on the Indian Child Welfare Act, Veronica was removed from her adoptive parents after two years and handed over to the birth father who had initially blessed the adoption. When asked why they chose to use their Grand Opening party as a platform to raise money for Save Veronica, Lucky's co-owner Kimberly Traynor said, "We were already planning to host a party to thank all of the people who have made our first couple of months so wonderful. But when we heard the story of Veronica and her family, we felt compelled to help in any way possible."
Lucky’s, located in the Island Plaza on James Island, first opened their doors to the public two months ago. After remodeling the entire facility, Traynor and co-owner, John Davis, were able to create an open, relaxed atmosphere that complements the Southern Coastal cuisine. The menu features creative takes on traditional southern classic dishes as well as healthy alternatives. The scratch kitchen focuses on products that are indigenous to the area. Open seven days a week, Lucky’s offers lunch, dinner and a full Sunday brunch.
