A devastated California bride and her mother turned their bad news into great news for some of those less fortunate.
When 27-year-old Quinn Duane called her mother to tell her that her fiancé called off their impending nuptials, the two decided that they would turn a negative into a positive.
Since the majority of the $35,000 banquet scheduled to take place Saturday at Sacramento’s Citizen Hotel was already paid for, and more bills were about to be due, the family decided to use the event to host some of the city’s homeless.
“When I found out on Monday that the wedding would not be taking place, it just seemed like, of course, this would be something that we would do to give back,” the bride’s mother, Kari Duane, told KCRA.
The lucky guests were filled with gratitude for the family and their kind gesture.
“When you’re going through a hard time and a struggle for you to get out to do something different and with your family, it was really a blessing,” one of the guests, Rashad Abdullah, told KCRA.
His wife, Erika Craycraft agreed.
“To lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving, really kind,” she said.
The jilted bride did not attend the event, but she was on her mother’s mind.
“I feel a lot of heartache and heartbreak for her, but I will take away something good from this, I will,” she told KCRA.
Mother and daughter will share an already paid for honeymoon trip together to Belize.
