Wish Upon A WeddingYou may have heard the news about the Big Gay Wish Upon A Wedding which took place recently here in Washington, DC.

Well, it looks like the wedding goodwill is spreading! Marni Gold of Creative Custom Card Boxes let us know about her new leadership role in the fledgling New Jersey chapter and she invites all-comers to help the organization celebrate its founding.

She writes:

The New Jersey Chapter of Wish Upon A Wedding will celebrate its official launch with a swanky cocktail party on January 18, 2011 at The Estate at Florentine Gardens in River Vale from 6:30PM to 9:30PM.

The lavish and newly renovated Estate at Florentine Gardens, located at 97 Rivervale Rd in River Vale, NJ, will host the organization's posh event featuring cocktails, music, entertainment and even a few fun surprises. To help make this a truly spectacular event, New Jersey wedding and event professionals & vendors will be donating their time, products & services. Guests who wish to make a donation will receive swag bags filled with incredible discounts, samples & goodies.

Wish Upon a Wedding is the world's first nonprofit wish granting organization providing weddings and vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Officially launched in January of 2010, Wish Upon a Wedding currently has over 16 active chapters to serve Wish Applicants and will have granted 12 wishes by the end of 2010. The WUW NJ board members hope to raise awareness and invite other New Jersey wedding specialists to get involved.

The chapter is asking for a suggested donation of $20 per person at the party. Donations will go directly towards helping to grant wishes to deserving couples.
