Woman Turns Cancelled $30k Wedding Into Party For Homeless People And Veterans

Now that’s what I call money well spent. The woman was absolutely devastated but did not want to make a bad situation worse. Reportca.net reported that an Indiana woman didn’t want her canceled $30,000 wedding to go to waste, so she threw a party for the homeless.

A bus pulled up to the swanky event center on Saturday that Sarah Cummins had booked for the reception in Carmel, a suburb just north of Indianapolis. About a dozen veterans from a local organization were among the guests who dined on bourbon-glazed meatballs, roasted garlic bruschetta and wedding cake.

“For me, it was an opportunity to let these people know they deserved to be at a place like this just as much as everyone else does,” Cummins said.

Several local businesses and residents donated suits, dresses and other items for the guests to wear.

Charlie Allen, who’s spent three months at a homeless mission, received a donated jacket.

Cummins said she is not sure yet what she will do with the wedding dress.

“It’s too painful to think about.” Read the entire story here.
