The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Benton Heights Presbyterian Church High School Youth Group raise over $1,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards the cost of the youth’s mission trip to Jamaica in June.
"We were glad to help the youth at Benton Heights Presbyterian Church raise funds for their upcoming mission trip," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We hope it is a life-changing learning experience for them and we wish them great success."
The Benton Heights Presbyterian Church Youth Mission fundraiser was hosted on March 24, 2012, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 2239 W. Roosevelt Blvd., Monroe, NC. The organization sold 183 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.
