She is making a lot of money off her business, with free labor.... !!!!! Good gig for her...!!! However bad for her free labor if they slip and fall or something else bad happens at one of these events...!!! She at least needs to provide the proper insurance to cover these types of problems...!!! After all she is not a 501.3 (C) business. She is about the profit in her pocket.
