Applebee's Make-A-Wish fundraising campaign returns in April

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Applebee's Grill & Bar franchise Apple Gold Group is launching its annual Make-A-Wish® South Carolina fundraising campaign.

For the month of April, restaurant guests at any Applebee's locations in South Carolina can purchase Wish Cards for the fundraiser to benefit children in the Carolinas who are coping with life-threatening illnesses. The proceeds will contribute to granting their wishes.

Applebee's strives to exceed $225,000 from about 30 wishes.

“Being able to grant a child's wish and see the happiness it brings is a special gift, and we are thankful to be a small part of the process,” said Michael Olander, President and CEO of Apple Gold Group.

As a gesture of appreciation, each Wish Card purchase may be used towards $10 in Applebee's discounts.

“We are deeply grateful to Applebee's for its steadfast and very generous support of Make-A-Wish South Carolina's important mission to children," said Bill Tiller, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish South Carolina.
