Chester County parents lose thousands on daughter’s cancelled wedding and donate venue to local non-profit

Wedding venues often come with unbinding contracts, that lead to families losing thousands of dollars if their event falls through. Jaime and Michael Helbein, Chester County parents, joined us on The Spark Tuesday to tell us about their experience of paying for their daughters’ wedding venue reservation that eventually needed to be cancelled when the wedding was called off. To turn a negative situation into a positive one, the Helbein’s gave their wedding venue reservation to a local non-profit, Art of Recycle, for a good cause.
