The Apple Gold Group, a franchisee of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar, is proud to have helped Mecklenburg County-South Rotary Club raise over $1,300 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will go towards Rotary’s End Polio Now Campaign.
"For 25 years, Rotary and its partners have worked to end polio. In September, 30 members from North Carolina will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds to eradicate polio," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group. "We would like to thank everyone who attended the pancake breakfast and we want to extend our best wishes to the climbers in the upcoming month."
The Rotary fundraiser was hosted on August 11, 2012, at the Applebee’s restaurant located at 5110 Piper Station Drive, Charlotte, NC. The organization sold 185 tickets and an additional $248 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.
