How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I purchased 3 tickets to this event (2 VIP/ 1 with can donation). The event was fine until the end when we were informed additional bags were available for giveaway. My daughter who was initially in the crowd to get a bag, was told to go to the front, which she did. Several people behind her (who approached after her) were handed light green toned bags by I believe the founder or someone who represented her (this person approached the area after bags were being distributed). She then proceeded handed out several bags to those who were clearly behind my daughter. My daughter was the last person left standing there, the person who was originally handing out the bags reached my daughter a red bag, the founder or a person representing the organization told the person not to give her the bag and proceed to ask my daughter if she wanted a box. The box was emptied, old and tattered. What message does this send a 4 year old? And further as we walked to our car my daughter continued to ask me why the lady in the pink shirt did't want to give me the red bag?
