Hartford’s Got Heart! Yelp Helps Gala For Good

Yelp Helps collage

On a lovely, warm Wednesday evening, the Hartford community gathered at the gorgeous Society Room of Hartford to celebrate and support 25 local nonprofits at the Yelp Helps Gala For Good. While generously raising $1,600 in door donations for Billings Forge Community Works, yelpers learned about volunteer opportunities from dozens of inspiring organizations and enjoyed samples from fantastic area restaurants, breweries and distilleries. Beyond the bites, sips, and nonprofit mingling, guests were entertained by live music, a DJ, marching band, and Nightfall's giant bird puppet throughout the evening. Want to know more?
