Applebee’s of Windham partners with local firefighters to host fundraiser for MDA

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar® has partnered with the Windham Fire Department to host a
Tip-A-Firefighter event to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Association. Local firefighters will serve as “celebrity waiters” at Applebee’s, and 100-percent of their tips will be donated directly to Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), aiming to make a difference in the lives of local children faced with the challenges of muscle-debilitating diseases.

The event will occur this Saturday, June 8 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Applebee’s of Windham, 1 Amato Drive.

Since 1954, The International Association of Fire Fighters have shown an unwavering commitment to defeating muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases. Funds are raised primarily through MDA’s signature Fill the Boot® campaign, in which member fire fighters gather on streets across the country collecting money in their boots from neighbors and passersby. Dollars collected in boots throughout the decades are translating into game-changing research progress today. 

Apple American Group, the largest Applebee’s franchisee in the country who own and operate the participating Applebee’s locations throughout New England, pledges to assist those less fortunate and support those institutions that enhance the quality of life in the communities it serves. Each restaurant stays engaged in its neighborhood through participation in community events,donations, sponsorships and fundraisers to help local organizations grow and flourish and takes care of their own team members through the Flynn Restaurant Group Family Fund.
