Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar presents a check for $45,728.16 to an Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Ambassador Hero Family from Sayreville, NJ who accepted the donation on behalf of the charity on September 1.
Throughout July, Applebee’s locations in New Jersey owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises raised a total of $19,925.15, in which 100 percent of proceeds from sales of its paper lemons and 25 cents from sales of its lemonade drinks benefitted the non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating childhood cancer. Guests were also encouraged to donate to the cause during their meal through the restaurants’ new table top devices. The month-long campaign marks the 11th straight year that Applebee’s franchisees have supported Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, with nearly $6 million in fundraising proceeds generated to benefit the organization since 2005.
From L to R: Anton Cruz, Alex’s Lemonade Stand hero family member, Donna Cruz, Alex’s Lemonade Stand hero family member, Kaela Cruz, Alex Lemonade Stand hero and osteosarcoma survivor and Kevin Coughlin, director of operations, Applebee’s.
