Imagine spending thousands of dollars for what is supposed to be the happiest day of your daughter’s life. Now imagine it never happening.
That’s exactly what Carol and Willie Fowler experienced when their daughter’s wedding was suddenly called off.
Instead of getting upset and allowing food for 200 guests to go to waste, the couple decided to feed the needy with it.
Carol and Willie Fowler teamed up with Hosea Feed the Hungry, a local [Atlanta] organization serving families in need, to turn the wedding-that-wasn’t into the first annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love…Elizabeth Omilami, head of Hosea Feed the Hungry, told Here & Now that the children who attended the event will never forget it. “The passed hors d’oeuvre were very interesting because the children were wondering, ‘could we take the whole tray, or do we just take one off of the tray?’” Omilami said.
There hasn’t been any word of why the wedding was called off, but Carol Fowler did note that her daughter was in attendance. “We’re very pleased that she’s handling it so well,” Carol Fowler said. “She was also very delighted to see and know that others had an opportunity to enjoy something, rather than just allow it to go to waste.”
What a stand up family.
Way to turn tragedy into a good deed.
