Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar presents a check for $44,590.50 to Liz Scott, executive director, Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Alex’s mom, who accepted the donation on behalf of the charity dedicated to eradicating childhood cancer on October 3. Throughout July, Applebee’s locations owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises in Florida, Georgia, New Jersey and Long Island donated 100 percent of proceeds from sales of its paper lemons and 25 cents from sales of its Summer Squeeze cocktails raising a total of $44,590.50, of which $11,153.25 was raised in New Jersey. The month-long campaign marks the 14th straight year that Applebee’s franchisees have supported Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, with nearly $10 million in fundraising proceeds generated to benefit the organization since 2005.
From L to R: John Antosiewicz, area director, Applebee’s New Jersey; Liz Scott, executive director, Alex’s Lemonade Stand and Alex’s mom; Rachel Gaida, general manager, Applebee’s Parsippany.
