Applebee’s Celebrates Eight Years of Helping Cure Pediatric Cancer!
2012 marks the eighth consecutive year that The Rose Group and Apple American Group have supported Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Applebee's is thrilled to announce that they raised a record $500,000 through their campaign in 2012, culminating in more $3.2 million raised since they began supporting the Foundation!
Donate $5 Get $5 Back
For years, participating Applebee's have run month long summer fundraising promotions in their restaurants in support of ALSF. In return for donating at Applebee's, customers received a $5 coupon for a free kids meal or frozen lemonade during their next visit. Their donation also entered them into a drawing for a chance to win free Applebee's for a year!
Additionally, Applebee's across the country donated 25 cents from each lemonade (all varieties) sold to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation during the month long campaign.
The Rose Group also hosts a golf outing in support of the foundation. More than 100 golfers come out each year to support the cause, donate, and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.
The incredible generosity of The Rose Group, Apple American Group, Bloomin' Apple/Heartland Apple and Apple by the Bay has resulted in more than $3.2 million raised since 2005.
