The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Tri Sigma Sorority Chapter of Barton College raise over $1,200 in just three hours at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will directly benefit travel expenses incurred for the chapter to attend the National Leadership Convention in Minnesota this summer.
"Applebee’s continuously strives to be a strong supporter of local community organizations and programs," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of Apple Gold Group. "We are proud to have helped such a great group of students and wish them all the best at their upcoming convention."
The Tri Sigma Sorority Chapter of Barton College Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on April 10, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located on 2300 Forest Hills Dr., Wilson, NC. The group sold 200 tickets to the event and raised an additional $121 in donations. 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.
