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.
Never miss a local story.
The Gig Harbor Applebee’s is located at 4827 Pt. Fosdick Drive NW, Gig Harbor.
