The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the National Foundation of Transplants raise over $1,200 in just two hours at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will directly support expenses for a liver transplant for a terminally ill patient.
"The Apple Gold Group is thrilled about the funds and awareness that was raised during this event," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "Medical bills are extremely expensive, and we are delighted to have helped relieve some of the financial stresses incurred to this patient."
The National Foundation of Transplants Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on May 8, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 6020 SW 3rd St., Oklahoma City, OK. The group sold over 180 tickets and an additional $180 in donations 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.
