Applebee’s Teams Up For NonProfits

A local-based Applebee’s helped Jack and Jill of America raise more than $1,100 as part of the restaurant chain’s "Flapjack Fundraiser" program for nonprofits.

More than 160 people purchased the $7 tickets for the event, with all money going to support child growth and development projects.

“We are excited to help Jack and Jill of America in their efforts to raise funds and awareness for their cause,” said Michael Olander, President and CEO of Apple Gold Group. “The Flapjack Benefit Breakfast was very successful in raising funds needed to further their ongoing projects and spread the word to increase community involvement.”

 The Jack and Jill of America Flapjack Benefit Breakfast was recently hosted by the Applebee’s Restaurant located at 4733 S. Yale St. Breakfast includes a short stack of pancakes, sausage, coffee, juice and milk.

Applebee’s is partnering 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 any Saturday or Sunday morning, and cost the organization around $2 a meal. The Applebee’s Flapjack Breakfasts represent the restaurant chain’s latest efforts to remain active within its local neighborhood.
