We don't need much, and hope that in lieu of lots of items, our wedding can help put some more good in the world. We've selected two charities that reflect our shared interests in music and our wonderful rescue greyhounds!
- Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation- in honor of our shared love of music, which first brought us together. This organization donates musical instruments to under-funded music programs, giving economically-disadvantaged youth access to the many benefits of music education, leading them to success in school, and inspiring creativity and expression through playing music.
- Steel City Greyhounds- In honor of our own two beloved retired race dogs, one of whom came from this rescue! Steel City Greyhounds is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming retired racing greyhounds in and around the city of Pittsburgh. SCG is a 100% all-volunteer organization.
