The bride, who has not been identified, called off her wedding after she learned something about her fiancé, according to NBC Bay Area, but decided to donate the reception, which cost around $15,000, to Parents Helping Parents (PHP).

The charity, which is based in San Diego, California, provides support and resources to families with children with disabilities.

The bride’s family member uses PHP’s services, and she was inspired by the organization’s work.

Instead of a wedding celebration, the reception was turned into a party for people with disabilities – called Ball For All – with food, music, dancing, a DJ and a photo booth.
