Boston Yelpers are a Charitable Bunch!

Posted by Ligaya T

Trish F, Chere P and Ligaya T teamed up to acquire donations for Frosty's Friends and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer by hosting a (platonic) date auction for Boston Yelp. Last Sunday hordes of yelpers flocked to Flash's packed with cash in promise of winning fellow yelpers for a date! Winners randomly selected a prize from sponsors including a dinner for two at Rangzen, hot tub soaks at Urban Oasis, tickets to The Hives at the Middle East and more! Converse also generously donated many cool threads for raffle.

The nineteen auctionees worked the stage encouraged by much cheering and silliness. They were evidently a desirable bunch as $2,400 was raised for these charities! See the auction action as photographed by Roni E on Flickr. We know the charitable feeling is contagious, so if you'd like to join in the gift buying and distribution with Frosty's attend the bowling gathering on the 19th to plan.

You guys are so awesome! Thanks for making this such a great night. I am so glad I got to meet so many other new yelpers.

If anyone is interested, Chere and I are working on a Bowl-A-Thon for Dec. 8th to raise even more money for Frosty's Kids. :-D
