In lieu of favors, we will be donating to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. Matt is from Memphis and has a personal connection to the hospital as they have helped a friend who recently gave birth to 24 week old twins. Our card holder will be a wine barrel because Matt sells wine, and we love it 🙂
