The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Disabled American Veterans Auxilary (DAVA) raise over $1,200 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will directly benefit the needs of disabled veterans.
"Veterans have sacrificed greatly for our country and we are proud to support them at every opportunity," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "It was an honor to help DAVA raise funds for this cause and we wish them the best of luck."
The DAVA fundraiser was hosted on March 24, 2012, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 1961 Skibo Road, Fayetteville, NC. The organization sold 198 tickets and an additional $14 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.
