A local family turned a canceled event into a chance to bless others affected by homelessness.
Willie Fowler says his family was planning a wedding celebration Sunday when it was abruptly canceled.
The family decided to partner with Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless and treat 200 people to a meal at the restaurant Villa Christina.
"Seeing people that may have or may not have an opportunity to dine in a place like this," said donor Willie Fowler, "for me to be able to assist them in doing this that's reward enough for me."
People who took part in the event say the kindness of the Fowler family encourages them to move forward despite their difficult circumstances.
