Dear Applebee's,


I want to express how thankful and appreciative I am for your sponsorship to Billie McKenna's Foundation's 3rd Run for Toys 5K which took place Saturday, May 18th, 2019. We are honored and touched by your support.

Your personal commitment helped us raise over 5,000 and was incredibly helpful. Proceeds will go towards providing developmental and adaptive toys for children who are challenged with a long-term disability or developmental delays.

Billie McKenna's Foundation has partnered with Celebrate the Children Elementary School and created a playground and Sensory Room. We continue to provide toy packages to NICU babies, as well as the Craniofacial Clinic at Goryeb Children's Hospital. We also provide toy packages for young epilepsy patients at Hackensack Meridian Children's Hospital, while continuing to donate adaptive bicycles to young children. We could not have done this without your help.

We truly appreciate your support for this event and look forward to working with you in the future.

Dear Alexandra Crujeiras,


Thank you so very much for the generous sponsorship donation in suppor of MyGOAL Autism Annual Bowling for Autism held on April 27, 2019. With over 120 registered bowlers and participants, the event was truly a great success.

The support of Applebees enables us to continue to provide the education, connections, resources and hope to the individuals and families coping with Autism worldwide. Over 10 years, we have supported over 90 families with $90,000 in grants. Additionally, we have engaged professionals to provide training and resources to families through our monthly support group and stress management program activities. These programs have reached over 10,000 people in the tri-state areas.

The prevelence rate of Autism in recent years continues to rise and with the most recent statistics indicating 1 in 59 children are diagnosed. This means more and more families have to deal with the challenges of the Autism journey. We truly hope we can count on your support as we continue to bridge the gap that keeps increasing between resources and the families who are unable to access them. Once again, thank you so very much for your support!

I am excited to share that thanks in part to Applebee's, the Relay For Life of Southeast Jacksonville was able to raise more than $36,000 to help American Cancer Society lead the fight for a world without cancer. We anticipate reaching our $45,000 event goal!!

The success of our event takes the work of many. We are grateful to have had Applebee's join us. 

It's because of your support that the American Cancer Society is able to help people facing cancer in every community by funding groundbreaking cancer research, supporting education and prevention efforts, and providing free information and critical services for people with cancer who need them.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Doherty:


"At the Mind Body Spirit Breakfast, I met a ton of women role models. One woman started her own candle business that is very successful. Another was an author and it was inspiring that she took her negative experience and turned it into a positive. These women helped me believe that anything is possible for a young girl like me." -Kayla R. '19

The 4th Annual Link Women's Committee Mind, Body and Spirit breakfast held on March 29, 2019 delivered a keynote speaker and workshops that inspired Kayla, the women who attended and the other young female Link Community Charter School scholars who joined them. Kayla's words demonstrate the impact opportunities such as this can have on Link students, exposing them to role models, such as entrepreneurs and authors, and helping them believe in the limitless potential they possess. 

Your generous support helped make the event a success and ensures Link Education Partners continues to deliver programs for Link students that inspire and equip them with the skills to realize their dreams. It is programming like this that educates the minds as much as it educates the hearts of the 296 young men and young women we serve each year.

Your donation makes certain we can launch scholars such as Kayla for future success. Thank you for supporting Link Education Partners and we look forward to your continued involvement.

Dear Alexandra,


"The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others" Lord Robert Baden-Powell, Founder of Scouting...

And with your generous gift to our 2019 Friends of Scouting Campaign, you have put happiness into the life of a Scout and we cannot thank you enough. With your support, along with the guidance of 2,000 volunteers, Jersey Shore Council prepares more than 6,000 children for a better life through our quality program emphasizing character, leadership and positive achievement.

But just how does Scouting affect young people? National studies show that children who are in Scouts outperform their classmates. In fact, children who were in Scouting five years or longer are more likely to...

  • Graduate from high school
  • Attend, and graduate from, a four-year college
  • Earn higher household incomes
  • Have higher rates of home ownership
  • More likely to get involved in their faith, and in their community
  • Are more likely to have a stable and fulfilling home life
  • Consistently report making the correct (as opposed to the easiest) decision

We know Scouting's impact is unique for each boy and girl, and because of your support they have a larger chance at a better life. On behalf of all of us at the Jersey Shore Council, thank you again for participating in our Friends of Scouting Campaign and we truly appreciate your generosity.


Yours in Scouting,

Dear Ms. Maddalena:


Thank you for your gift for The 2019 Valerie Fund Walk & JAG Physical Therapy 5K through Applebee's.

Your gift is already at work reducing the emotional impact on a child with a life-threatening childhood illness. Through your gift, you are helping to lay a foundation for The Valerie Fund kids' future happiness and success.

Thank you again for your generous gift and for making The Valerie Fund a priority. They are truly some of the bravest kids we will ever know. 



Barry Kirschner

Executive Director
