RALEIGH, N.C. - June 20, 2018 - PRLog -- Forty-four North Carolina Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar locations hosted a fundraiser from March 6th, 2018 through April 2nd, 2018, benefiting the V Foundation For Cancer Research. The restaurant's 'March Hoops Fundraiser' asked visiting guests at any of the forty-four Apple Gold Group Applebee's locations in North Carolina to donate $1 or more to the V Foundation. For each $1 donated, guests were given a paper basketball to personalize and display in the restaurant. In the spirit of March Madness, guests chose from several different basketball styles representing UNC, NC State, Duke, Wake Forest, and ECU. Several locations hosted family friendly events such as golf tournaments, silent auctions, and jail and bail fundraisers.

The Apple Gold Group is proud to have partnered with the V Foundation for the past 12 years, raising over $1.4 million for cancer research. On Wednesday, June 6th, The Apple Gold Group and the V Foundation celebrated the 2018 fundraiser, which raised a total of $90,113.
