Well if you didn't like what they offered perhaps you should volunteer to co-ordinate it next year.
If every parent gave just a few hours of their time these sorts of events could be fab. All too often it falls upon the shoulders of a few who then take the flak from those who do nothing but complain.
I totally agree, and get involved in plenty of other fundraisers for school, scouts and church. This was the first year DD has been a rainbow, so I had no idea what the event would be like. She was disappointed so I am sad for her. I don't recall parents being asked to contribute btw, otherwise I would've offered.
