Karolin (Karol) Shirin had lived in Turlock for most of her life, still has family that lives here, and has now made it to the top 5 in the 2010 San Francisco Dream Wedding Giveaway.
Karol Shirin and her fiancé Derrick Jones entered a dream wedding giveaway contest where they eventually made it to the top 5 out of over 350 entries.
All of the couples submitted their Love Stories hoping that they would be able to win over the judges in their chance to win a $100,000 dream wedding put together by about 40 bay area wedding companies.
Now the top 5 couples’ Love Stories will be voted on by the public until February 3, 2010. The couple receiving the most votes wins the $100,000 wedding giveaway.
Karol sent a message to TurlockCityNews.com asking for her Turlock family’s help:
I would like to ask for your help. I lived in Turlock most of my life, my family still lives there. My sister was sick with a rare blood virus. She fought it for 3 yrs and doctors didn’t think she would make it but she did. Soon after she fell in love and got engaged. My family couldn’t afford to give her a proper wedding. I took out a loan on my house and gave her a dream wedding. I recently got engaged in July and now can’t afford to get married. I entered a dream wedding contest.
To help Karol and Derrick, they’re asking for everyone to please vote for them at this link.
