The 'Full Monty' wedding allowing kids to be kids again
On the 14th February 2019, Monty Haron and Monty King, two Newcastle marriage celebrants auctioned off a dream wedding to one lucky couple.
With the generosity of local wedding vendors, the boys crafted the perfect all-inclusive wedding package valued at over $50k and in a charity first, vowed to donate 100% of the proceeds from the final bid to Camp Quality.
They say a wedding is one of the happiest days in a person’s life. Monty King knows this full well, having married over 230 couples. Then he met Monty Haron - a Camp Quality volunteer for five years, who has seen that for kids impacted by cancer, days spent on camp are some of the happiest days they’ll experience during treatment.
“I signed up to volunteer with Camp Quality knowing that I wanted to make a difference in kids’ lives, what I didn’t know then was that it would end up being the best decision I made as a teenager. The smiles we put on some of the most inspiring kids’ faces are truly priceless,” Monty H says.
When it was time for auction day, the love in the air was palpable. After a bidding frenzy, newlyweds Brody & Emma took home the 'full monty' wedding package for $34,500. The money spent on their happy day helping Camp Quality to ensure kids facing cancer can be kids again on camp.
