But Yelp Helps may be her most ambitious undertaking of the year. Coming to the Cannery Ballroom on Aug. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m., the event showcases Nashville nonprofits including: Adventure Science Center, Agape Animal Rescue, Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville, Conexion Americas, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Girls on the Run Nashville, Nashville Children’s Theatre, NeedLink Nashville, Operation Stand Down Nashville, Sports 4 All Foundation, The Sexual Assault Center, The Tennessee Charter School Incubator, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Transit Now Nashville and Urban Green Lab.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about these worthy charities at displays and even sign up to volunteer for the coming year. But it's not just about altruism — Yelp Helps is also a helluva party thanks to a sponsorship by Heroes Vodka. The 21-and-over event is free, but reservations are required. Each RSVP'd guest will receive two drink tickets, and donations will benefit the participating nonprofit organizations. With a $10 minimum donation per RSVP, guests will receive an extra Heroes Vodka drink ticket, a “Hero Tote” filled with goodies, and private bar and lounge access throughout the night.
There's also going to be some great food, as well, from some of your favorite Nashville Originals restaurants and other purveyors including Table 3, Tayst, Puckett's, Provence, Germantown Cafe, Copper Kettle, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, The Turnip Truck, 1808 Grille and GooGoo Clusters.
