The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Preservation of African American Cemeteries (PAAC) raise over $1,100 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards assisting the group with cemetery preservation and documentation.
"Cemetery restoration is a means of honoring those who have gone before us," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We applaud PAAC on its efforts to reverse cemetery deterioration and we are glad to have helped the organization continue its cause."
The PAAC fundraiser was hosted on January 28, 2012, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 12110 Chenal Parkway, Little Rock, AR. The organization sold 150 tickets and an additional $300 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.
