Washington couple's wedding gift: 150,000 cans

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — One wedding gift for a Spokane couple won't come in the form of a card with money or a nicely wrapped present but rather 150,000 cans.

Pittsburgh-based aluminum producer Alcoa Inc. says it will make the donation to Peter Geyer and Andrea Parrish as part of their effort to pay for their wedding by recycling 400,000 cans.

The Spokesman-Review says that gives them about 260,000 of the containers — almost two-thirds of their goal.

Parrish says the worldwide response to their can-do wedding is better than they could have hoped for.

The wedding is scheduled for July 31.
