Big congratulations to our friends in the northwest! April 24th marked the first anniversary of Lyft in Seattle. The community came together to celebrate milestones and honor the drivers who make safe, friendly transportation a reality in their city.
Ten drivers were presented with coveted gold-trimmed ’staches to acknowledge their achievements on the road, following the Lyfty Awards tradition set by San Francisco and LA. Ratings Superstar Catherine earned the honor after hitting 193 five-star rides in a row, while Daniel "LuauLyft" took one home for providing epic in-car experiences.
DiscoLyft kept the tunes pumping as passengers joined the party and caught up with their favorite drivers. The photo booth was jam-packed throughout the evening as the crowds lined up to pose with familiar faces and silly props.
Drivers donated artwork, photography, and jewelry for our silent auction, helping raise $834 by the end of the night for the Inspire Youth Project, a local nonprofit serving at-risk children.
Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate an incredible year of Lyft in Seattle. Here's to many more!
