OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Homeless people in Ventura County will get a treat this weekend when a father donates the banquet from his child's canceled wedding to those in need.

KABC-TV reports 150 homeless residents are invited to partake in an elegant meal at Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard Saturday.

A spokesman for the Ventura County Rescue Mission, which is helping the father organize the dinner, says the man called Friday saying he had 150 meals. The mission only needed to get hungry mouths to the hotel.

The father has asked to remain anonymous.

Mission regular Robert Duncan, a Gulf War veteran, says he plans to put on his best attire for the dinner.

Last month the family of a bride-to-be donated a $35,000 banquet to Sacramento's homeless after her wedding was canceled.
