Couple asks wedding guests for streetcar donations

Send a link to a friend

[March 11, 2009]  CINCINNATI (AP) -- Instead of toasters and blenders, a Cincinnati couple has asked their wedding guests to give a more unusual gift: donations to a local streetcar project.

RestaurantKristen Myers, 29 and 30-year-old Chris Heckman put that request on their wedding Web site. They say reactions from friends and relatives have been positive.

The bride- and groom-to-be said they hope the emphasis on Cincinnati's proposed streetcar system will make their guests want to come back downtown if the project succeeds. If it doesn't, guests' tax-deductible donations will be returned.

City Council recently set up an account to start soliciting private donations for a roughly three-mile, $185 million streetcar line from downtown to the area of the University of Cincinnati.
