What's better than a house party? How about a house party that helps a worthy local cause? On February 18, Yelp Helps officially launched in the Bay Area with a "house party" of epic proportions at Room & Board San Francisco. Yelpers in attendance donated over $1000 cash and three barrels of canned goods to the SF-Marin Food Bank and, in exchange, enjoyed munchies, adult beverages, as well as live entertainment all over the 50,000 square-foot space.

Not only did Yelp Helpers get to explore a massive show room and relax in the house, they also interacted with a handful of truly amazing San Francisco non-profits and signed up to volunteer! Read the warm fuzzy reviews and see photos from our house party, courtesy of Kevin Kluck
