A Pittsburgh man whose wedding was called off decided to turn the lemons he was dealt into “LemonAID”, a charity fundraiser for an organization that provides free surgery in developing countries.


32-year-old Phil Laboon, who is a marketer by trade, sold tickets to his pre-paid reception for $75. He expected to raise about $50,000 from the sold-out Saturday event, and from raffle ticket sales on items donated to the cause — all for the benefit Surgicorps International.
