Unethical Business Practices

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
This business "partners" with local charities on their events, but it's BS. At best, they mislead their participants, at worst they flat out lie. 90% of what they do for the charity partner is market them on the website. That's it. The money that the "company" donates comes directly from the participants. All Community Events BARELY donates any money themselves (if they donate anything at all). You are better off running on your own and then donating directly to the charity.
