The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the friends of Rick Sells, a local resident diagnosed with cancer, raise over $4,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards needed renovations in his home.
"We are glad to have helped the friends of Rick Sells raise funds to support him during his time of need," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "Our thoughts are with Rick and we wish him the best of luck."
The Rick Sells fundraiser was hosted on December 10, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 6310 Allegacy Way, Clemmons, NC. The organization sold 200 tickets and an additional $2,919 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.
