The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Pinecrest Lady Patriots Basketball Team raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards equipment and tournament fees.
"We are glad we could support these young women with team and travel expenses," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We wish them the best of luck with their season."
The Pinecrest Lady Patriots fundraiser was hosted on December 10, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 1403 N. Sandhills Blvd., Aberdeen, NC. The organization sold 175 tickets and an additional $100 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.
