The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped Miracles for Matthew raise over $1,500 in just two hours at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will help find and support treatments for a 3 year old boy who has a rare brain tumor that causes daily seizures.
"The community, volunteers and Applebee’s employees did an incredible job of coming together to host a successful event," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of Apple Gold Group. "We are excited that our Flapjack Fundraiser program was a part of such a good cause and we wish Matthew and his family all the best."
The Miracles for Matthew Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on April 11, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located on 9616 E. Independence Blvd., Matthews, NC. The group sold 140 tickets and an additional $425 in donations was raised. Breakfast included a short stack of pancakes, sausage, milk, juice and coffee.
Applebee’s is proud to partner with any local non-profit organization as a way to raise money for their cause. From ticket sales to event-day staff, the breakfasts are managed by the non-profit organization with the assistance of Applebee’s employee volunteers. Breakfasts can be held on any Saturday or Sunday morning, and cost the organization around $2 a meal. The Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraisers represent the restaurant chain’s latest efforts to remain active within its local neighborhood.
