The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Leesville Road High School Football Families raise over $1,200 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards equipment and uniforms.
"School athletics are very important to the community and we always enjoy helping local teams raise funds for their efforts," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We were delighted to work with the Leesville Road High School Football Families and we wish them the best of luck this season."
The Leesville Road High School Football Families fundraiser was hosted on August 27, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 8701 Brier Creek Parkway, Raleigh, NC. The organization sold 180 tickets and an additional $410 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.
