The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Marvin Ridge Middle School Beta Club raise over $1,600 in just three hours at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will assist with travel expenses to send the club’s State winners to a National Convention in Louisville, KY.
"The students, volunteers and Applebee’s employees did a tremendous job of coming together and raising awareness and funds for the Beta Club," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We are extremely proud of the success from this event and we wish the students well in their upcoming travels."
The Marvin Ridge Middle School Beta Club Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on May 15, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 5110 Piper Station Drive, Charlotte, NC. The group sold 260 tickets to the event and an additional $200 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.
