South Jersey

July 13, 2009 —  Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill and Bar, and Corner Bakery Cafe today announced it has raised more than $1.6 million for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). For the fifth year running, the event was led by The Rose Group, a Pennsylvania-based franchisee of Applebee’s and Corner Bakery Cafe restaurants, and its partner Apple American Group. The companies have rallied support from their local communities, raising much needed money for pediatric cancer research in memory of Alex Scott, who dedicated her short life to battling childhood cancer “one cup of lemonade at a time.”
