Immediatly after hearing about the shocking closure of the all-inclusive venue, Monte Cristo Ballroom, Essence of Events, LLC jumped into action. Working tirelessly over the next few weeks to pull together multiple qualified vendors in the area willing to participate in an event to offer discounts and raffle items for several couples left without a venue, officiant, baker, catering and more.
The outpour of vendors with a willingness to support and offer discounts to these couples, was inspiring. As we combed through so many vendor applications, vetting each according to business license, reviews and portfolios, we found some of the best of the best to showcase at the event held just one month ago on November 8th, 2019.
With success and much gratitude we offer the most sincere thank you to all who stepped forward in an act of kindness, because of your generousity we were able to help couples who lost more than money, they had lost hope and now are renewed with a sense of faith and hope that their weddings will go on successfully.
It's events in life like this that happen and it becomes undeniable that there are still those who practice good and believe in the spirit of giving. So much appreciation and thankfulness to all the vendors who stepped forward and especially to those who participated and contributed greatly to this event. Congratulations to our raffle winners who won items from free DJ to Floral and more!
