The Wedding of an American Hero

Hello possible donor,

                   Los Willows Event Estate is proud to announce that on February 14, 2015, we are generously hosting the wedding of American Hero, Jorge Ortiz and his “future Mrs.”, Aiyanna Coleman.

              On January 25, 2011, while deployed in Afghanistan, Jorge’s life was dramatically changed when he was badly injured by an IED (improvised explosive device). Marine Jorge Ortiz lost both legs above the knee, the majority of his fingers on his left hand, the use of his left thumb, and both his right thumb and middle finger were severely damaged.

              During one of the darkest times in his life, Jorge found his light – Aiyanna. The couple met when Aiyanna was Jorge’s massage therapist at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. Aiyanna herself has also served in the Military as an active duty female searcher and as a cook for the Army. Aiyanna continues to serve in the Navy Reserves.  The couple had an instant connection with many common interests, and eventually the love birds’ romance blossomed into a beautiful love story with a “soon-to-be” happily ever after.

            This is where we need your help and generosity. Any and all donations are very much appreciated. Los Willows is hosting a Silent Auction in efforts to raise money for the Ortiz Wedding, so along with any form of monetary donation, an item donated to the Silent Auction is appreciated as well. Let’s see Jorge and Aiyanna’s dream wedding come to life!

            If anyone would like to read more about Jorge and Aiyanna’s love story please feel free to like, share, and follow their page on Facebook – “Jorge and Aiyanna – the Wedding of an American Hero”

We thank you for your time and generosity!
