Everyone involved benefited from the soiree; the vendors earned new customers to review their establishments, attendees enjoyed free samplings from beer to tanning services, and the Gesu School gained increased financial support.
Yelpers were greeted with delicious and moist cupcakes from the Sweet Box Cupcake truck and gourmet pizza from the Nomad truck. Once inside, people mingled with existing friends, while making new Yelp connections, and swam in the club’s colorfully lit pool. Not only did guests sample fare, but they also received coupons for future visits to places not limited to, but including Cavanaugh’s Headhouse, Minar Palace, and Rita’s Water Ice. When the night proved to be too much fun for some, promotional offers from Uber came in handy for a safe journey home.
The Gesu School in Philadelphia strives “to provide a quality, innovative education for its neighbor children to empower them to break the cycle of poverty and violence” using diverse educational and cultural experiences and catering to students of all abilities.
The Yelp community in Philadelphia is an awesome way to meet new people and read reviews about everything throughout the region and the United States. I’m a Yelper myself and it’s nice to know that Yelp gives back to those who contribute to the site. If you didn’t have a reason to join Yelp, knowing that events like this could be on your schedule in the future should be a good enough one. Sign-up for Yelp here.
