Email prompts man to attend stranger’s bachelor party

January 17, 2019

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A wrongly addressed email has led to an Arizona man attending a bachelor party at a ski resort in Vermont for a stranger this weekend.

William Novak of Phoenix got the email on Jan. 7 about the ski weekend for Angelo. He didn’t know the person but the party with its over-the-top invitation sounded like a good time so he emailed back as a joke to say he was in. The party-goers agreed that Novak should join the fun.

The father of a 10-month-old says he couldn’t rationalize spending $750 on airfare, ski rentals and lift passes so he started a GoFundMe page to pay for the $750 trip. He says the remaining money raised will be given to Angelo, who with his soon-to-be-wife are expecting a baby.
