The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the National Foundation for Transplants (NFT), in honor of Kevin Randall, raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will directly support the NFT and assist with medical expenses for transplant patients.
"The NFT is a wonderful organization and we are delighted that they turned to Applebee’s for fundraising support," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "Hospital and medical expenses can be extremely expensive and we are glad to have helped relieve some of these financial stresses incurred to these patients."
The National Foundation for Transplants Flapjack Fundraiser was hosted on July 17, 2010 by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 433 Earl Rd., Shelby, NC. The organization sold 150 tickets and an additional $518 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.
