The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped Team Kenya raise over $2,600 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will directly support Kenya Potthier, a 12-year-old recently diagnosed with bone cancer, and her family.
"This was a wonderful event for Kenya Potthier," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We are glad to support Kenya and her family and wish them the best of luck with her recovery."
The Team Kenya fundraiser was hosted on December 12, 2010, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 9409 E. 71st St., Tulsa, OK. The organization sold 93 tickets and an additional $1,946 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.
