Glenview Chief Rents 767 For French Nuptials

May 31 2012 | 2:32am ET

It's good to be friends with Glenview Capital Management founder Larry Robbins.

The hedge fund millionaire is set to marry former dancer Sarahmay Wesemael on June 9, in the south of France. So Robbins, who famously won his fight to build a hockey rink adjacent to his New Jersey home after a four-year battle with neighbors, has rented a Boeing 767 to fly about 100 people to the wedding.

And quite a wedding it will be: four days of partying on the French Riviera, according to the New York Post. The 42-year-old's 33-year-old wife-to-be is a New Jersey native, but reportedly has family ties to the southern French city of Nice.

The marriage will be Robbins' second. He has four sons with his first wife, Amy.

In exchange for the free flight, Robbins has reportedly asked guests to donate to KIPP Charter Schools.
