Yelp Helps After School Special

The Yelp Helps After School Special (A Giant Party For A Good Cause!) photoYelp is always doing cool stuff– Yelp Eats, the Yelp Drinks promotion, and lots of other, smaller events around the city. This time, they’re giving back to the community and presenting a pretty cool event that highlights some of the smaller non-profits in the Cincinnati area.

Yelp Helps, held at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center on Friday, March 30 at 8 p.m., will feature lots of great food from local providers as well as the chance to interact with nonprofits. Here’s the list of nonprofits– some you’ve probably heard of, and some I’ll bet you haven’t.
