The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Special Olympics Arkansas raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. All proceeds raised will directly support the Special Olympics Arkansas athletes that are attending the National Games.
"The Apple Gold Group is proud to support Special Olympics Arkansas and their fundraising efforts," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "This is a great group of young and inspiring athletes and we wish them the best of luck at their upcoming National Games."
The Special Olympics Arkansas Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on June 26, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 4333 Warden Rd., North Little Rock, AR. The organization sold 90 tickets and collected an additional $596 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.
