U.S. Freedom Pavilion: the Boeing Center
945 Magazine St, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130
Yelp New Orleans and The National WWII Museum are inviting members of both the Yelp community as well as the local military communities to partake in a night of revelry on May 19 from 8-11pm at The National WWII Museum US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center during #MilitaryAppreciationMonth to celebrate local businesses support of those who have served.
Yelp's Five Star Salute is our grand celebration during Yelp Salutes Our Troops, a month-long initiative connecting local businesses to the military and Yelp community through promoting local military discounts, highlighting veteran-owned businesses, donation drives, and more.
100% of the proceeds will go to VetLaunch.org, a local, non-profit organization that provides veterans and their families with the resources, training and connections to successfully transition from military to civilian life. Their programs include job training and placement, a Business Accelerator for veteran-owned businesses, housing assistance, and mentorship.
The National WWII Museum's US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center is keeping the lights on for our annual Yelper party; a celebration of the best in local businesses from savory samples to tasty libations to live entertainment while WWII planes hang suspended in midair, creating a truly picturesque party for the books.
