Thorough and Professional
Our Fundraising event took place on a Thursday night and Jordan and the entire Block 41 crew did an outstanding job. We were especially appreciative of the thorough technical assistance provided and the ease of access for both the front end and the back. Great communications throughout.Sent on 05/14/2019
