Family donates canceled wedding reception to 200 homeless people
Carol and Willie Fowler had planned an elaborate wedding reception for their daughter. Sadly, the wedding was canceled after all the arrangements were set. But they saw opportunity where others would see only tragedy, and teamed up with Hosea Feed the Hungry in Atlanta to turn the reception they'd planned in the first annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love, feeding 200 people in the process. "We're very pleased that she's handling it so well," Carol Fowler said of her daughter to Here & Now. "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." "Events are canceled," Fowler continued, "and sometimes for unknown reasons. Give them an opportunity to use that for people that will not have an opportunity, perhaps in life."
