Help Pay for Katie & Ranjan's Wedding

Katie and Ranjan had planned a beautiful reception for their wedding this July. On May 9th, their reception venue, reBar, abruptly closed their doors with no warning--and no refunds. This was not simply a business going under, details are now coming out that the owner of reBar stole all of the money out of reBar's accounts and ran. He has since been arrested on other charges (related to unpaid taxes). Katie & Ranjan's wedding was essentially stolen from them by this greedy man.

Now, not only have they lost over $20,000 that they pre-paid to ReBar, they must now set forth planning and paying for a new reception.

Planning an entire reception (including food, drinks, music, and flowers) in less than three months would be an incredible feat regardless of budget limitations. Now they must somehow come up with enough funds to cover a new reception. You can help the happy couple make this possible!

Donate to this page and spread the word! We're hoping to raise at least $5,000 to help them out. This is just a drop in the bucket of what they lost, but any little bit helps!

Help this Brooklyn couple enjoy their upcoming wedding with friends and family!
