Hats off to this woman!

An American woman whose USD$30,000 (RM128,000) wedding was cancelled has hosted the homeless at her banquet rather than let it all go to waste.

The wedding reception of Sarah Cummins, 25, had been booked at the plush Ritz Charles in Carmel, Indiana, and was non-refundable.

So she contacted homeless shelters in the area and guests were bused in for Saturday's 170-seat dinner.

Cummins called off the wedding but has not given the reasons.






She told the Indy Star: "It was really devastating, I called everyone, cancelled, apologised, cried, called vendors, cried some more and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing away all the food I ordered for the reception."

She had been due to marry Logan Araujo, who had footed the largest part of the bill.

Cummins said her ex-fiance, whose mother died recently, had agreed to the solution.

Mr Araujo told the Indy Star: "I'm happy through my grief and also Sarah's that she was able to make a selfless and very thoughtful decision in such a hard time."
