"The Rotary Club of Rocky Mount works hard to support the community and we are delighted to help raise funds for its efforts," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We are glad this fundraiser was a success and we wish them the best of luck with their upcoming endeavors."
The Rotary Club of Rocky Mount fundraiser was hosted on February 18, 2012, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 1120 Wesleyan Blvd., Rocky Mount, NC.
