Seldom does a canceled wedding go from heartbreaking to heartwarming, but when the fiancé of bride-to-be Quinn Duane backed out of their wedding, the reception turned into an unexpectedly fancy feast for the homeless community.
Reported via KCRA, it all happened in California at Sacramento’s Citizen Hall where plans to cater to more than one hundred guests had already been carried out, costing Duane’s family a whopping $35,000.
“When I found out…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,” Duane’s mother, Kari, said, regarding the evening’s banquet.
The bittersweet affair provided dinner expenses for at least 90 homeless individuals and families combined, creating an early Thanksgiving for those less fortunate.
“To lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving, really kind,” said Erika Craycraft after she experienced the Duane family’s benevolent act of kindness.
Although the would-be bride didn’t appear at the event, she did venture off to Belize with her mother on what was supposed to be the honeymoon for the ill-fated couple.
With a good deed like this on their consciences, we can bet it was one beautiful mother-daughter bonding experience.
