The Apple Gold Group, franchisee of Applebee’s restaurants in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Arkansas, is proud to have helped the Benton Junior High Choir Booster Club raise over $2,000 at a recent Flapjack Fundraiser. Proceeds raised will help the Heartsong Choir travel to Branson to sing at the Dixie Stampede.
"We always enjoy supporting the fundraising efforts of schools in our communities and we are glad the Benton Junior High Choir Booster Club had a successful event," said Michael Olander, President and CEO of the Apple Gold Group.
The Benton Junior High Choir Booster Club fundraiser was hosted on September 17, 2011, by the Applebee’s restaurant located at 17348 Interstate 30, Benton, AR. The organization sold 350 tickets and an additional $50 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.
