The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped Last Chance for Arkansas Animals, a non-profit dedicated to rescuing dogs, raise over $3,000 in just two and a half hours at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will assist the organization in their Rescue Run 2010 that will relocate 15 dogs from Arkansas to New York.
"The Apple Gold Group is extremely pleased about the success from this Flapjack Fundraiser," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "These animals will now have a loving and safe home and we are delighted that we were able to support this rescue mission."
The Last Chance for Arkansas Animals Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on May 8, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 12110 Chenal Pkwy., Little Rock, AR. The group sold 210 tickets to the event and an additional $1,800 was collected. 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.
