The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Brown Bag Youth In Action, a club of approximately 30 students helping the Brown Bag Ministry, raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will benefit the Brown Bag Ministry, which distributes lunches every week to families in need throughout the Triangle area.
"These young adults are making a huge difference in the community and we were proud to support their efforts," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We were glad to help Brown Bag Youth In Action raise money for such an important cause."
The Brown Bag Youth In Action fundraiser was hosted on April 9, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 3625 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC. The organization sold 166 tickets for the breakfast, which 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.
