My company manages 60 events annually, and we work with many wonderful not-for-profit organizations. I can't say enough about Crystal & Isis, I love the direction that they are taking this organization. The love and passion for what they do to assist others dealing with a really rough time is amazing, and I know God will continue to bless them; I'm sure their mom is looking down on them, and she's pretty proud!!! Continued Success, Chereese Jervis-Hill, President, Events To Remember, www.EventsRemember.com
