Board of Directors - PR Media Chair
I have a very exciting announcement to make....
I have been voted onto the Las Vegas Wish Upon a Wedding Board of Directors as PR Media Chair. What a humbling honor!
Wish Upon a Wedding is an organization founded to support couples in love during the deeply challenging times in their lives. The charity's mission is to grant weddings to couples facing terminal illness (where one has been diagnosed with less than five years to live). Additionally, a limited number of Wishes are also granted to those who have endured serious life-altering circumstances (for example: seriously injured military veterans, and those facing extreme hardships). Considered “Special Circumstances”, these types of Wishes are granted based on current resources and availability.
Weddings allow us to live in a fantasy for the briefest of moments. They are an extension of our own personal dreams, the fairytale come to life, and a wish for our future. These are powerful moments acting as aphrodisiacs that break up the monotony of our every day life. And, as Las Vegas is a city built on fantasy and desire, I cannot think of a better city to house and embrace a charity such as this one!
Everyone deserves to have that moment in their lives when they can just "be" in front of family and friends, when they can celebrate their love with dignity and bravery and hope. Wish Upon a Wedding gives couples (and those that love them) the opportunity to have that moment.
To say that I feel the gravity of the situation is an understatement. I have long believed in the transformative effect a wedding has, and to be able to give back not only to, but through, that moment feels extraordinary.
