Last Friday, The National WWII Museum’s US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center provided a picturesque backdrop for Yelp’s Five Star Salute, our grand celebration during Yelp Salutes Our Troops, a month-long initiative connecting local businesses to the military and Yelp community through promoting local military discounts, highlighting veteran-owned businesses, donation drives, and more.
Local restaurants providing signature and seasonal dishes; live entertainment from the vivacious Victory Belles to the sweet tunes of Rosie & The Swingin’ Riveters; dazzling raffle prizes; and sensational libations from both local and national sip sponsors highlighted this party with a purpose.
While guests boogied and imbibed, they also contributed over $4,000 in donations from both door contributions and raffle prize tickets to VetLaunch, a local, non-profit organization that provides veterans with the resources to effectively make the transition from military to civilian life; from business start-up help to job training and placement.
