An Espanola couple celebrated their wedding anniversary a little bit differently from the norm.

Pat and Donelda Houle have been long-time supporters of Community Living Espanola, which assists adults with challenges.

The couple celebrated their 50th anniversary this past weekend by hosting a backyard party, but instead of gifts, they set up a table for donations to the organization.

By the end of the evening, just over $600 was collected to go towards community living programs.
