The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped Kinsey's Heroes and COTA.org raise over $1,400 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards a liver transplant for Kinsey Berry, a 2-year-old girl from Holly Springs.
"This was a great fundraising cause and it was wonderful to see so much support from family, friends and members of the community," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "Our thoughts are with Kinsey and her family and we wish her the best of luck."
The Kinsey's Heroes and COTA.org fundraiser was hosted on September 17, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 3625 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC. The organization sold 55 tickets and an additional $1,216 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.
