Celebrating Love and Generosity: Tommy and Jennifer Lankswert’s Wedding Donation to Down Syndrome of Louisville

Mike Bush dances with the bride, Jennifer, at the reception.

Love has the power to bring people together and inspire acts of kindness. In a heartwarming gesture, Tommy and Jennifer Lankswert recently celebrated their marriage by making a remarkable decision. Instead of asking for

traditional wedding gifts, they chose to support a cause close to their hearts: Down Syndrome of Louisville. This selfless act not only touched the lives of the Lankswerts but also brought immense joy to the Bush & Boehnlein Families, their dear friends, who both have sons with Down syndrome. Many of the gifts were made to honor Mike Bush and Maxwell Boehnlein.

On Saturday, amidst love and laughter, Tommy and Jennifer Lankswert tied the knot in a ceremony that radiated warmth and joy. Surrounded by their families, friends, and loved ones, they embarked on a new journey together. But their wedding was not only about their love for one another but because of their generosity-  it was also a celebration of inclusivity, acceptance, and support for Down Syndrome of Louisville

Tommy and Jennifer Lankswert’s wedding donation serves as a powerful reminder of the significance of giving back. It emphasizes that our celebrations can be meaningful opportunities to support causes close to our hearts and make a positive impact on the lives of others. Their selflessness inspires us all to reevaluate our own actions and consider how we can contribute to causes that matter to us. The Lankswerts remind us that our actions, big or small, can have a profound impact on those around us, and that love can be amplified through acts of kindness.
