The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped a local Race for the Cure team raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
"We always enjoy supporting members of the community who come together in honor or in memory of a family member or friend who has been affected by cancer to help raise funds for a cure," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group.
The Race for the Cure fundraiser was hosted on August 13, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 8701 Brier Creek Parkway, Raleigh, NC. The organization sold 140 tickets and an additional $140 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.
