The couple collected 280,000 cans themselves in 197 days; the remaining cans were donated by Alcoa and United Recycling Services. Pete Geyer and Andrea Parrish have reached the target for their July 31, 2010 wedding.

40% of their proceeds will go towards their marriage and honeymoon; the remaining 60% will be donated to Doctors Without Borders and the Rim Country Land Institute.
