Lions and tigers and bears, oh Yelp! For the first time in Seattle Yelp history, the month of May offered the entire Yelp community a chance to check out one of 4 animal-themed events. Hosted at the Fred Wildlife Refuge, it sure proved to be a wild month! With face painting, flavor tripping, massages, food, drinks and photo booths galore, even the DJ dressed as a zebra didn't seem so crazy with all of the madness going on.
And because Seattle is home to more Non Profits than almost any other city in the country, it made sense to pick a local cause and raise money for. Selected as the beneficiary for the events was local NPO, The World Is Fun. With free admission and free food, we simply asked that guests pay just $1 per adult drink. Thank goodness we did because over the course of the four events Seattle's Yelp community raised more than $3200!
Making each event a smashing success wouldn't have been possible without the help from our participating sponsors: Soul'd Out Events, Wing Central, Mberry, The Triple Door, Ninkasi Brewing, Captain Morgan Black, Crown Royal Black, St. Germain, Tanqueray, Fentiman's, Tapena Wines, Freixenet, PopChips, Honest Tea, Wild Ginger, Koral Bar, Smirnoff, Ketel One, Kind Snacks, Psoup Productions, Frogbox, Emerald City Beer, Uber Seattle, Z Tejas, and the Fred Wildlife Refuge.
From a Safari Party to an Under The Sea Adventure, a Jungle themed-event and a foray into a Magical Forest, it was sure a month to remember!
