The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Marcus Garvey Leadership Charter School raise over $1,200 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will help offset costs of its student trip to Africa.
"Congratulations to the Marcus Garvey Leadership Charter School for its successful fundraiser," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We were delighted to support their efforts and we wish them the best of luck."
The Marcus Garvey Leadership Charter School fundraiser was hosted on October 29, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 3521 S. Broadway Ext., Edmond, OK. The organization sold 170 tickets and an additional $145 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.
