Denver Elite Event: The 2019 Yelpies at Gattara-Warwick Denver Hotel

Tuesday evening marked one of our most special events of the year, The 2019 Yelpies at GattaraWarwick Denver Hotel. 160 Yelpers stepped into a newly renovated space, filled with warm hospitality and divine cuisine. Before the fun even began, Yelpers generously donated over 200 items for our beneficiary, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver. We love giving back any chance we get, and we are so grateful by the overwhelming support from our community.

After Yelpers dropped off their donations and scanned their party passes, it was time for food, drinks, and fun! The Warwick’s new restaurant, Gattara, pulled out all the stops with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, hand-made pizzas, entrees, desserts, and so much more. Fan favorites were the Elk Pepperoni Pizza, Margherita Pizza, Braised Short Rib, Roasted Salmon and Strawberry Streusel Dessert.
