The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Forgotten Felines of Forsyth raise over $2,600 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will be used to fund veterinary expenses for injured and sick feral and stray cats.
"Homeless animals need our help in all of our communities and we’re delighted that the Forgotten Felines of Forsyth had a successful fundraising event," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We wish this organization the best of luck with their future endeavors."
The Forgotten Felines of Forsyth fundraiser was hosted on April 16, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 1990 Griffith Road, Winston-Salem, NC. The organization sold 259 tickets and an additional $225 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.
