Would you recommend The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?

When I got to the event, it was rather unorganized. The woman in charge didn't ask our names till after she gave us our order, that's not a big deal to me but I could see how others would be upset. The only frustrating part was that we were constantly being told to sell more raffle tickets and to push for the $50 "Diamond Raffle" to all the of folks whom already had purchased them. This was from the woman whom put the event together, not the society. Would have been nice if the advert for this said "Sales skills required" instead running games. Overall it was a good experience, Looking forward to the lantern 5k.
