CONCORD -- Good old American bacon and eggs were set aside Friday morning for tea and crumpets and a little romance.

And while guests at Ellen Kessler's Royal Wedding Watch Party also enjoy champagne and true wedding cake in honor of Prince William and Kate Middelton's nuptials, they are also reaching out to help others.

Guests are being asked to bring a contribution to "Feed Lake County," just as the Royal Couple has asked guests to make a charitable donation in lieu of a wedding gift.

The Victor Manor House is the scene of the watch party. It is home to Lake Erie College President Michael T. Victor and his wife, Craige.

Kessler says it offers a "taste" so-to-speak of authentic England in the design of it's bookcases.

The Victor House is located at the George M. Humphrey Equestrian Center an area that Kessler says look similar to the Broadlands. The Broadlands is a country house near the town of Romsey in Hampshire, England.

President Victor graciously allowed Kessler to use his home for the party, despite the early morning celebration, knowing it was for a good cause.

Kessler is a royal enthusiast. On display at the part are several pieces of her personal royal collection.

While the major focus of the party is what is happening across the pond, what is happening high above the Earth is also being noted.  

Kessler says the group will mark a special moment in American History as guests toast the astronauts of Endeavor as it embarks on it's last mission.

Further west, The Pub Rocky River also hosted a watch party as well. They asked for food donations that they will donate to the Rocky River Assistance Program. They will continue to collect donations through Sunday.
