California newlyweds, Aron Cooperman & Lainey Hu share a love for animals. Lainey is a veterinarian at Kirkwood Animal Hospital and Aron is an engineer and professional photographer at Open Light Photo. Together they live in San Jose with their Australian Kelpies, Dally and Cricket (pictured above). For their big day they asked friends & family to contribute to World Vets and help animals in need around the globe!
The generous pair had a destination wedding in Ambergris Caye, Belize and plan to celebrate with a stateside reception in July of 2015. Lainey explained that for their big day, she and Aron wanted to give back while encouraging their wedding guests to do the same. “World Vets is an organization that not only helps more unfortunate countries, but also incorporates teaching students, doctors and technicians alike,” Lainey said of choosing World Vets as a donation recipient. “It just made sense.”
Lainey began her involvement with World Vets in 2013, when she participated in an Equine project that provided aid to horses in Granada, Nicaragua. “What better way to see the world and do something more than just sightseeing,” she said of her volunteer experience. So far, friends & family of Aron and Lainey have raised over $400 in honor of the couple. All funds raised by this event directly benefits World Vets and goes towards the care of animals that would otherwise have no access to life-saving treatment.
The World Vets team is honored that Aron and Lainey made us a part of their special day. We would like to congratulate them on their recent marriage and thank them for their continued support of World Vets’ mission to improve the health and well being of animals worldwide.
Inviting friends & family to donate in your honor is a wonderful way of supporting the work that we do. World Vets’ Event Registries are not just for weddings. You can register any upcoming event, including graduations and birthdays! To make World Vets a part of your special day, click HERE!
