Yelpers Get Their Groove On for a Good Cause

Yelpers Get Their Groove On for a Good Cause

Roughly 400 partygoers discoed the night away at the Playhouse Nightclub in Hollywood during Yelp's Summer SOULstice Disco Dance Party late last week.

The final in a series of four kickoff events for the site's "100 Days of Summer" extravaganza, it offered local Yelpers and their plus-ones a chance to enjoy delectable food and drinks from places like DeLuscious Cookies & Milk, Sweet Red Peach and Flipflop Wines all while learning about the extraordinary work that United Way is doing throughout the community.

After taking in a performance by the all-female roller derby team, L.A. Derby Dolls, and hamming it up for the cameras, guests boogeyed their way over to the Home for Good booth for a crash course on the five-year action plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness.

Thanks to their generosity, and the coordination efforts of the entire Yelp L.A. team, more than $1,200 was raised to benefit Home for Good (a joint initiative between United Way and the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce) which housed over 3,100 homeless individuals in its first year.
