Yelp Turns 15 – A Fundraiser for CCI at One Paseo in Del Mar

On August 19th, Shake Shack, Tender Greens, Screwball Whiskey, Sephora and many other local sponsors gathered for Yelp Turns 15 at the brand new One Paseo complex in Del Mar. Although, this was a birthday celebration for the brand, it doubled as a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Onsite, there was all sorts of incredible food, local beverage sponsors, and super hip retail to shop around at. There was even a performance by Thomas Ian Nicholas who you might remember from the movies Rookie Of The Year and American Pie
