Canceled Wedding Feeds the Homeless
(The Root) — Carol and Willie Fowler had reservations for 200 at the high-end fine-dining Italian restaurant and special-event space Villa Christina in their hometown of Atlanta. The dinner was originally intended to celebrate the wedding of their daughter, Tamara, but 40 days before the planned nuptials, Tamara told them the wedding was off, leaving them with an expensive, four-course meal still on the calendar. But instead of canceling the festivities, the Fowlers turned the wedding into a celebration of a different kind of love: choosing to donate the dinner to a local charity, Hosea Feed the Hungry.
