Bride gifts glitzy banquet to the homeless after wedding abandoned

Bride gifts glitzy banquet to the homeless after wedding abandoned

Cummins, 25, is a pharmacy student at Purdue University and she told the IndyStar she and her ex-fiance Logan Araujo had paid for the wedding, along with some help from family and friends. "I've worked so many weekends and so much overtime to pay for this, I wanted to make sure it would be the flawless wedding", Cummins explained, adding that she plans to stay for the dinner with her mom and her two sisters as long as she doesn't become too "emotional" to stay.

Cummins, who didn't say why she cancelled the wedding, was left with a nonrefundable contract for the venue as well as a prepaid dinner for guests - a $30,000 value that she couldn't bear to see go to waste.

Sarah Cummins, a pharmacy student at Purdue University in IN, called off her wedding and threw a party for the homeless.

Cummins said she decided that rather than throw away the food, she would bring some goal to the event and contacted area homeless shelters.

United States lawmaker calls for hearing on Amazon purchase of Whole Foods
The shareholder has reportedly said the deal undervalues Whole Foods and is being made without sufficient transparency. A USA politician has called for hearings on the proposed deal to consider its ramifications for shoppers and workers.


While Cummins is still grieving the loss of her wedding, she's happy that grief has a objective.

But last week they called off the wedding for reasons they would rather not say. Buses were arranged to pick them up.

It was an incredible event held at the Ritz Charles, with a menu including bourbon-glazed meatballs, roast garlic bruschetta, chicken breast with artichokes and Chardonnay cream sauce and wedding cake.

"It's just a really great opportunity for us, that was going to be a huge tragedy in her life", Erik Jensen who lives at Wheeler Mission homeless shelter said at the party.

Some of Ms Cummins' family joined her at the event, along with three bridesmaids.

After the dinner, Cummins will head to her honeymoon to the Dominican Republic with her mother. "I've worked so many weekends and so much overtime to pay for this, I wanted to make sure it would be the ideal wedding", Cummins told the newspaper.

Later, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin tweeted that no Ukrainian citizens were among the victims in the Hurghada attack. Egypt has experienced an uptick in violence over recent months, with Coptic Christians the target of most of the attacks.


Despite the generous gesture, Ms Cummings she did not feel that she was being particularly altruistic but was glad to have "some kind of happy memory to pull from" after working weekends and overtime to pay for it. She cheerfully greeted and welcomed her guests when they arrived to attend the Saturday party.
