In mid-September, Lauren and Erin said “I do” at the Vox Theatre. It was a fun wedding, but one of the things we loved most about it was how they chose to use their wedding day to give back.



Often we hear of people listing a charity as part of their gift ideas, or selecting to go green. Lauren and Erin went a little different route – they chose a rental company for their chairs, linens and decorations who supports a non-profit youth program. This company also provided the floral arrangements and did a majority of the event set-up.

The Refuge is a Non Profit 501c3 Coffeehouse and Youth Club run by Champions of Life Inc. and Hartley’s Karate as a community outreach. The center is dedicated to supporting youth and their families as they fight for their destinies. We believe that to become a Champion you must have a dream, a plan, positive habits, friends and family that encourage and enable you to become the best you in the world!”

They use the rentals business to help support their programs. While their inventory is not as extensive as some of the more well known party rental companies, they have an ever expanding inventory, as well as some unique items at reasonable prices.

Here are some of the items that Lauren and Erin used for their beautiful ceremony and reception including: theatre ropes, chair covers and table linens, a crystal chandelier and milk-glass containers for floral arrangements.
