Review by Liz S.

Grand OpeningReviewed on July 19, 2012From New Lenox, IL

Lisa was truly a wonderful addition to our event. Her vast portfolio of music was well appreciated, and from feedback from our guests, her talents were truly appreciated. I emailed Lisa this morning and let her know that I would certainly keep her in mind for future hospital events, as well as other events in our community.
