Weddings are a big deal, they’re typically very expensive and for most of the big ticket items – venue, dinner, honeymoon and that sort of thing, all the deposits paid are typically non refundable. So when Quinn Duane called her mother Kari just 5 days before her big day to tell her that her fiance had called off the wedding, there was no hope of being able to cancel and get any of the over $35,000 in deposits paid back.
But instead of crying in her wedding dress on what was supposed to be her wedding day, Quinn and Kari decided to give back to their community. The bride to be and her family decided to host their city’s homeless for an extravagant meal at a banquet hall in a hotel. Quinn’s mom told KCRA News, “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.”
