The Uptown location of chain restaurant Applebee’s is taking part in a month-long campaign supporting the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
The fundraiser started Tuesday and marks the 11th consecutive year that franchisees of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar have supported the foundation.
Coming off a record of more than $1 million fundraising proceeds generated in 2014, and nearly $5 million raised since 2005, more than 870 Applebee’s restaurants nationwide will work toward topping the $6 million mark in 2015.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation grew from the front yard lemonade stand of four-year-old cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott. Today, the Foundation bearing her name has become one of the nation’s leading philanthropic organizations in support of pediatric cancer research.
The Gig Harbor Applebee’s is located at 4827 Pt. Fosdick Drive NW, Gig Harbor.
