The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Wilson Luncheon Lions Club raise over $1,600 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will help fund the Club’s services.
"The support provided by the Lions Club is valuable for the needs of citizens in the community and we are delighted to support its fundraising efforts," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group.
The Wilson Luncheon Lions Club fundraiser was hosted on May 21, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 2300 Forest Hills Dr., Wilson, NC. The organization sold 246 tickets and an additional $146 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.
