What do you do when your wedding is called off just 40 days before the reception? If you're the awesome Fowler family you turn a terrible situation into a selflessly awesome celebration.
Initially the Fowlers were upset to hear that the expensive gathering they had planned and paid for was not going to happen. Then they had a genius and generous idea: They invited 200 of Atlanta's homeless to feast on the four-course meal that would have been part of their daughter Tamara's wedding reception!
The Fowler family called Elizabeth Omilami from the Hosea Feed the Hungry organization for her help in getting the group together – many of whom were children. The event was titled "The First Annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love," and the family says it plans on hosting another charity dinner next year.
Carol and Willie Fowler are pretty cool people! (Shine)
