The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Nash County Landowner’s Association raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards attorney fees as it fights to save two protected watersheds from pollution of a poultry plant and spray fields.
"It is vital to protect our environment and our community," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We are proud to support the efforts of the Nash County Landowner’s Association and we wish them great success with their endeavors."
The Nash County Landowner’s Association fundraiser was hosted on January 7, 2012, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 2300 Forest Hills Dr., Wilson, NC. The organization sold 150 tickets and an additional $434 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.
