A Pennsylvania man’s wedding was called off, but he decided not to cancel the party.  He had already paid for it!  Phil Laboon decided to take the lemons he was dealt and turned them into LemonAID, a charity fundraiser.

Laboon’s event raised thousands in donations for Surgicorps International, a nonprofit that provides free surgical and medical care for people in developing countries, KTLA reports.  The total amount raised is still being tallied.

We’re thinking Phil won’t be single for too long.
