Markham, Ontario, October 28, 2013
Markham-based financial advising firm TruFinancial Consultants donated their hand sanitizers in support of a free wedding for a fabulous couple. Eco-friendly hand sanitizers were provided to wedding guests at the dinner.
This was the second time TruFinancial Consultants supported the Wedding Saviours. The first one was the Durham Region wedding in 2012. Aside from the hand sanitizers, Trufinancial Consultants also offers free 90 Minutes Consultation sessions to married couples as well as runner-up couples.
"As a financial advisor, I have seen too many couples get in debt because of their weddings. I am sure getting together and starting a new life should not be starting by having DEBTs together," commented Mimi Lee, managing principal of TruFinancial Consultants. Mimi then connected with Wedding Saviours to consider including her service to help newlyweds budgeting and cash flow management. "Getting married is such a milestone in our lives; we should have a good plan ahead.
A few things had marked history on this event:
- The wedding was a group project of 81 team members, including vendors from the Wedding Saviours GTA team 2013. This is the largest team Wedding Saviours had got thus far;
- total value on the wedding worth over $80,000, including a honeymoon trip;
- our groom is a double-lung transplant recipient;
- the finalists collected a total weight of 24, 036 lbs on food and water, delivered and
donated to the food bank, through their pay-it-forward social activities, during the contest
before the winning couple was picked
