Yelp & Salvation Army’s WinterFest!

It’s a WEAR A COAT/GIVE A COAT party!

We’re partnering with the fantastic Salvation Army to kick off their bell ringing season and do good for the city of Chicago. We’ll be heading to the rooftop of the beautiful new Bulley & Andrews building for a night of food, drinks, fun, a celebrity guest and doing good!

Come celebrate the start of holiday season with Yelp. Bring a coat to donate (or if you’d rather just donate money to the Salvation Army, that’s absolutely fine).
