In­di­ana bride-to-be calls off $30,000 wed­ding, throws party for home­less

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - METRO | STATE -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — An In­di­ana woman who called off her $30,000 wed­ding de­cided in­stead to throw a party for the home­less at the swanky event cen­ter she had booked for the re­cep­tion.

Sarah Cum­mins told the In­dia- napo­lis Star she called off the wed­ding sched­uled for Satur­day a week ago, but de­clined to give a rea­son.

She was left with a non­re­fund­able con­tract for the Ritz Charles in Carmel and a plated din­ner for 170 guests.

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

Two buses car­ried shel­ter res­i­dents and fam­i­lies to the event to dine on bour­bon-glazed meat­balls, goat cheese and roasted gar­lic br­uschetta, chicken breast with ar­ti­chokes and Chardon­nay cream sauce and wed­ding cake.
