The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Shining Starz Special Needs Cheer Squad raise over $1,100 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will help send the squad to a national competition in Dallas, Texas.
"Our team truly enjoyed helping this squad raise funds to compete against other special needs squads from across the country," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We wish them safe travels to Dallas and the best of luck at their competition."
The Shining Starz Cheer Squad fundraiser was hosted on January 29, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 2401 S I-35 Frontage Road, Moore, OK. The organization sold 255 tickets and an additional $65 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.
