Landon Borup called off his wedding to Quinn Duane, less than a week before they were set to marry.
Her fiancé had been having doubts and the couple ultimately made a decision to call it quits before saying “I Do”.
The first to arrive was a woman who lives in a shelter for those who can’t afford rent but are too old to work.
Many, including Rashad Abdullah, came with their families, giving their kids a rare night out.
Meanwhile, about 40 percent, or $165 billion worth, of food ends up in landfills uneaten – fresh, edible food that ends up rotting in the trash. The family usually struggle to get three meals a day.
His wife, Erika Craycraft, had the Duane family top of mind. The Duane family’s generosity meant a lot to them, she told KRCA. “To lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving”, said Craycraft.
The food is the same as what you’d get at the hotel’s four-star restaurant, The Grange.
KCRA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1LhGQNe ) single people, grandparents and whole families with newborns enjoyed a meal that included appetizers, salad, gnocchi, salmon, and even tri-tip.
There’s plenty to go around.
Tamara Dotson, who’s also homeless, said, “This is not coming out of our kitchen, we love our chef leo but he wouldn’t be preparing nothing like this”.
While there are plenty of full stomachs and smiles, the night is still painful for the Duanes.
Quinn Duane, the would-be bride, did not attend, instead opting to stay home with her friends.
The bride and her mother will still take advantage of the nonrefundable trip to Belize that would have been her honeymoon.
“I hope that when she looks back at this, she knows she was doing something good with a bad situation”, Duane said.
