The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Medical Assisting Club at Lenoir Community College raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will help fund its trip to the state conference in March of 2011.
"We were delighted to support this great program at Lenoir Community College," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We know their state conference will be a wonderful learning experience."
The Medical Assisting Club fundraiser was hosted on December 11, 2010, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 4483 Highway 70 W., Kinston, NC. The organization sold 130 tickets and an additional $300 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 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.
