A woman who learned six weeks before her wedding that her fiance was cheating on her is turning her would-be reception into a charity benefit.
She and her mother canceled the band, photographer and florist, but learned they would not be reimbursed for the reception and block of rooms they had reserved. So they turned the reception into a benefit for the Vermont Children's Aid Society and CARE USA, an international relief organization that aims to combat poverty by empowering women.
Awesome, awesome. If I am ever in this situation (God forbid), I now know what I will do.
