Help Kara & J.Mike's Wedding

Just yesterday Kara and J.Mike found out (via internet, nonetheless) that their wedding reception venue, reBar, in Brooklyn, NY, unexpectedly shut down and declared bankruptcy. As if that wasn't terrible enough, the owner of the restaurant also stole over $15,000 of Kara and J.Mike's hard earned money that they had saved for their wedding. The owner has been unreachable and missing since Friday morning, so there is a very slim-to-none chance they will get their money back. They now must search for a different venue, caterer, etc. on an extremely tight budget given their loss.

Kara and J.Mike are both amazing and loving people. With the love and support of family and friends, we can help ease some of their stress and frustration.

Any donation at all would be incredibly helpful and so appreciated!
