A Wish to Wed Society

I want to pause for a moment and tell you about this new non-profit organization… it’s called A Wish to Wed Society. It’s founded in 2014 by Vancity Vendors Kim Trehan of Soirée Planners, Jelger Vitt and Tanja Aelbrecht of Jelger+Tanja Photography, as well as Tianna Tran, and Neet Aujla. Together they dedicate themselves to granting matrimonial wishes to couples faced with a life threatening illness. They want to grant a deserving couple the wedding of their dreams this year and they will need as much help as they can get. They are currently planning their first fundraiser.

Guests will enjoy an array of activities including a seated lunch while listening to live opera, they will be entertained by a live dance performance and then for the sporty types, some golf lessons. There will also be a silent auction which will feature art, diamond jewelry, and gift certificates to local businesses, among other items. To end this event, guests will be treated with high tea service while experiencing the beautiful sounds of opera once again.

If you would like to RSVP to this event, you can purchase your ticket here. They also welcome donations if you can’t make it to their event. If you yourself want to make a wish, you can do so here before August 31, 2014.

This is a wonderful cause and I wish them all the best in this endeavour. If you know anyone who might benefit from this please pass this along and help make their wedding dreams come true.
