Applebee’s to Host Fundraiser & Tap Takeover Featuring Founder’s Brewery

Posted on April 17th, 2017 by TEAM Schostak in Events

TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR) will host a Tap Takeover event featuring Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Founder’s Brewery and fundraiser for Impression 5 Science Center at our East Lansing Applebee’s, located at 2450 Coolidge Rd.

On Thursday, April 27 from 5-9 p.m., Applebee’s will host a special Dine to Donate event during which 20% of food sales will be donated to Impression 5, a dynamic interactive space for local families to play, create and challenge their understanding of science.

In addition to the Dine to Donate, a Tap Takeover will be hosted featuring several of Founder’s Brewery’s signature craft brews, including an exclusive early release of Palm Reader, a pale ale made with Michigan-grown hops. Proceeds from the sales of the Palm Reader brew will be donated to Grand Rapids Whitewater—an organization focused on cleanup and preservation of the Grand River.

Impression 5 is an inspiring organization that makes a meaningful difference in the community and we are proud to continuously find ways to expand upon our existing partnership with them. One of the highest recognized breweries in the United States with a dedicated and passionate team, Founders immediately came to mind as a great partner for this Tap Takeover event, especially with its connection to Grand Rapids Whitewater. We are thrilled to partner with these great organizations and share with our community a fun night while supporting some great causes.

Throughout the event, Founders will be providing fun items to share with guests and will host a raffle with an assortment of large prizes, including metal Founders signs, a luxury Founders cooler, and Gift Baskets with assorted items from impression 5. Live music will also be performed from 6-8 p.m.

In 2016, TSFR Applebee’s was a proud sponsor of Impression 5’s “Hot Wheels: Race to Win!” exhibit, a traveling exhibit featuring hands-on experiences, authentic race gear, and captivating memorabilia. We are currently sponsoring the exhibit Curious George: Let’s Get Curious, which continues its run through May 7th.  While the next exhibit is yet to be announced, TSFR Applebee’s looks forward to continuing its support of Impression 5’s traveling exhibits.
