Tip #3: Designate Volunteers

These events may seem like they require minimum to no-work but that just isn't the case. Without your organization working together as a team, your event won't be quite as successful as you'd planned. Designate volunteers to pass out flyers, share information on social media & contact your supporters—handing out vouchers & explaining the event as well as volunteers that will help at your Applebee's location during prime hours of your event (lunch & dinner).

Bookworm Reading Club

We understand the importance of reading and that it is sometimes a struggle to get children to pick-up a book. This reading-focused program encourages children 10 and younger to read at least 10 books, recording it on their Bookworm club record card. The reward is too good to pass-up!
