Phoenix Elites Celebrate 2019 By Raising $950 For The AZ Humane Society!

On Wednesday, January 16th, because Event Space welcomed Yelp’s new and returning Elites for 2019 into their chic and modern styled home. Upon arriving, attendees were greeted by staff from the AZ Humane Society (and pup!) where Yelpers generously raised $950 for this amazing cause. The place was packed with 5-star local businesses where Elites were invited to dine, sip, and explore the night away. As party goers went about chatting amongst themselves, they enjoyed the upbeat tunes provided by DJ Curtis Whipple before taking on champagne, donuts, edible cookie dough, Mediterranean food, tacos and more. Whether people were taking funny photos with Goof Booth, playing a round of hacky sack, creating their own Yelp succulent creation, or being treated to an amazing braid by Brynne Nicole Beauty… there was something fun for everyone to do!

A huge thank you to the wonderful team at because Event Space for hosting this celebratory event and to all of the participating businesses who made it a night to remember.

Lots of love for these fantastic local sponsors:
