The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped Hoover Elementary School raise over $1,200 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will support the exchange program between a group of eight students from Hoover Elementary and their sister school in ChongQing, China, in May.
"The Chinese exchange program will be an invaluable experience to the Hoover Elementary students and we were glad to help them raise funds for it," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We know they will have a wonderful time in ChongQing in May."
The Hoover Elementary School fundraiser was hosted on April 2, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 4733 S. Yale St., Tulsa, OK. The organization sold 200 tickets and an additional $100 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.
