Our surprise wedding was witnessed by some of the staff and Daniel Mellado who is the Director of Sales for the resort. After posing for a picture with all who attended the ceremony we were escorted to our dinner on the beach in a converted cabana. The meal consisted of us both smiling and reviewing how surprised we were. Upon completion of dinner, we returned to building three to see our room was decorated with rose petals and balloons, and the picture we posed for on the beach.
The remainder of the trip was spent exploring the sights, and spending the most quality time together. After checking out and riding the shuttle back to the airport we still were in disbelief with the most amazing gift that was given to us. Sharon and I returned to our children, dogs and home with a renewed look on life and desire to pay our great fortune forward!
I read about For Pete’s Sake, Walk! at Citizens Bank Park before being accepted into the program. I had already decided that I wanted to be a part of the event whether Sharon and I were chosen for the respite vacation or not. I created a team (Bill’s Benevolent Bunch) for the Sunday, April 30th experience so that we can help other families take a break from cancer and begin to repay this gift of kindness we were so generously given by FPS supporters. Our team is one of the top 5 teams right now, and we feel so supported by our community! I challenge you to fundraise creatively before April 30th, so you can experience the great fundraising incentives AND help more people like me and Sharon take a break from cancer. If you haven't signed up yet and are looking for a team to join, I invite you to join ours! The more the merrier!
I am very lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful and selfless people who have shown me more love and compassion than I can ever repay or explain. You all have the opportunity to help For Pete’s Sake grant the gift of ever-lasting memories.
Thank you for your time, PLEASE have a great day, and I hope to see you on April 30th in Philadelphia!
With Love, Bill
