Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Af­ter a wed­ding in Cal­i­for­nia was called off, the bride’s fam­ily de­cided to in­vite home­less peo­ple to the re­cep­tion meal in­stead.

The bride’s mother, Kari Duane, said her daugh­ter told her on Mon­day she and her fi­ance had de­cided not to go ahead with the event.

Rather than can­cel, Ms Duane in­vited home­less peo­ple to the feast at Sacra­mento’s Cit­i­zen Ho­tel.

About 90 turned up to en­joy steak, salad, salmon and other del­i­ca­cies. One of those who took up the in­vi­ta­tion, Rashad Ab­dul­lah, ar­rived with his wife and five chil­dren.
