Cancelled Wedding Plans Blossom to Feed 200 Homeless Atlantans [Post Release]

What do you do when a wedding you've planned for months is suddenly cancelled?  The Fowler Family called Hosea FeedThe Hungry and together they hosted more than 200 deserving individuals and families in partnership with Mary Hull Freedom House, Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless and The Nicholas House. The event was held on Sunday, September 15, 2013 at one of Atlanta's most premiere wedding venues, Villa Christina located in Dunwoody.

"We thought this would be an opportunity for families to enjoy a 4-course fabulous meal at a location they would probably never visit again in life and we wanted them to have a social festivity with their family. Our first thought was Hosea Feed the Hungry. They make a special effort to keep families united in spite of their crisis," adds Mrs. Fowler.

"The event on Sunday demonstrated how as a community when we come together and live in harmony, we can make a difference.  Today is an example of harmony. Hosea Feed The Hungry is very thankful to the Fowler Family and their heart for the poor." says Elisabeth Omilami, CEO of Hosea Feed the Hungry, "It is a blessing that this family provided an experience for those who are less fortunate to enjoy an afternoon with their family at one of Atlanta's premiere wedding venues. We are so thankful for their generosity."

The selected venue, Villa Christina is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets and has long been a favorite destination for fine dining, wedding, and celebrations of all sizes. The Fowler Family was excited to share this experience and encourages others to consider the same; "When you have a function that you are unable to fulfill, take those funds and help a non-profit organization," says Mrs. Fowler  "We [globally] are one family created by one parent and we should be about aiding, supporting and protecting one another," Mr. Fowler concludes.
