Yelpers with a Cause!
And y’all thought yelpers just ate and drank all day! Most of us do, but Saturday was an exception as we participated in the Chicago Cares Annual Serve-a-thon. Kathleen O, Stella Y, Mesum N, and many other fabulous yelpers loaded the yellow school bus at 8 am (yes, we woke up before 8 am on a Saturday) which took us to Burnside Scholastic Academy on the South Side.
And there sure was lots of work in store for us when we arrived at school! Our favorite Yelp couple, Edward H and Vicky Y, as well as many other yelpettes climbed those ladders right away to start painting those dreary walls. Some of us yelpers (ahem Ian S) got more paint on the floor than on the walls, but 6 hours later we left a cheerful yellow walled Burnside for some fun in Grant Park.
Until a few weeks from now (when we leave those paint brushes at home in exchange for some wine & cheese) we’ll SYOY! For more pictures, click here.
