Yelp Tampa Bay threw their largest event of the year, a fairytale masquerade, featuring over 40 food, drink and entertainment vendors at the historic hotel, The Don CeSar, also fondly referred to as The Pink Palace. On Sunday, April 29, 650 Yelpers dressed to impress in gorgeous gowns and dapper suits, donned masks and threw in a bit of whimsy (e.g. fairy wings, crowns, etc.) for good measure to party the night away. Spread out across the entire fifth floor of The Don Cesar, which included five rooms and two outdoor verandas, guests were treated to live music, fun entertainment and fabulous fare and libations. Tampa Bay’s most active Yelpers, the Elite Squad, enjoyed their own VIP room sponsored by MOR-TV. This event served as a fundraiser and thanks to the generous donations from Tampa Bay Yelpers raised $5,110 for Give The Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that provides weeklong, cost-free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Check out all the reviews of the event here and see dazzling event photos here.
