Amidst the pandemic, it did not stop Wedding Wish from hosting their very first annual Love Lock Celebration last July 16, 2022, live on Youtube. The Love Lock ceremony is where guests who want to pledge a gift to the foundation have the opportunity to purchase a lock that will be attached to our portable gate and placed on the summer art display at Kissimmee Main Street.
The event was hosted by their founder, Leia Perez, and Vice President, Logann Veney. There was never a dull moment as we witnessed a Magical Mickey & Minnie Moment and, live performances were given by Jasmine King, Amanda Jay, and Word Smithe keeping the party going. Guests participated in raffles and giveaways valued at up to $500 and, shop for great deals during the Online Silent Auction.
The new grantees Ellene and Robert Brown were awarded their grant personally by the Mayor of Kissimmee, Olga Gonzalez. Wedding Wish got a lot of great deals from their silent auction and received a lot of donations from their very generous sponsors. Looking forward to next year’s Love Lock Celebration.
