ALa's Most Bizarre Favor to Ask Ever...

Ok, I am not even sure where to begin with this...

My brother's best friend has entered a contest for the tri-state area and has made it to the end. He is one of three finalists. On-line voting begins today and lasts until the 14th to decide who will be the winner.

I have known Jeff since he was in tenth grade. He is now a college graduate and a Philadelphia fireman. He is also the finalist in the contest to win a wedding at Dunkin' Donuts. Yes, you read that right. If he wins...he will have his wedding at a doughnut shop between February 10 -18th. (I have extracted a promise for permission to post wedding pics here). He will win a $15k wedding, a wedding cake made completely out of Dunkin' Donuts (?), a full honeymoon, and $3,000 each for him and his girl.

Now, I have done my 'surrogate sister' duty in advising him against this and making clear that --as funny as this may be-- he will be MARRIED when it is done. He says that he understands and really wants this. Firemen, as most first responders, aren't handsomely paid...so this is probably a lot more than he could have spent for a wedding...even if it is in a heated tent in the parking lot of a doughnut store...
Apparently, this week he will be appearing on local talk and TV morning shows.

So, what I am asking of all of you is that you go to THIS SITE and vote for Jeff and Margaret... (one vote per person).

The name of the site is actually www.iwantmyweddingatdunkindonuts.com...that in itself makes the whole thing even more bizarre...

So, go help out a brand new Philly firefighter get his dream Doughnut wedding....
GO VOTE!

...and if he wins --you will all be privy to the pictures.
