The Yelp Atlanta community knows how to party with a purpose!
On a rainy Tuesday night hundreds of Atlantans came together to celebrate 21 local non-profits at the Georgia World Congress Center. We raised over $1,500 for the participants at the door, in addition to the money they raised individually via raffles, games, photobooths, and more. From carnival games to cooking demonstrations, puppies to ponies, and Elvis and Santa, there really was something for everyone.

In addition to the warm fuzzies, Yelpers got full bellies thanks to our food sponsors at OMG Cup and Cakes, Uncle Maddio's Pizza, Pure Knead, Cypress Street Pint + Plate, Pirate's Booty, Pie Shop, and Googie Burger. Local beer like Jailhouse Brewing and Red Hare were on hand as well as Magner's Cider.
