Rehoboth Applebee's raises funds for food pantry

Residents of Rehoboth Beach helped raise $1,754 to support Cape Henlopen Food Basket with a weekend-long bake sale hosted by the local Applebee’s, 36501 Seaside Outlet Drive in Rehoboth.

Funds were raised through various restaurant volunteers who donated baked goods and more than 40 local businesses that provided gift cards and vouchers valued at $50, but sold for donations of around $35.

The Rehoboth Applebee’s in conjunction with Patty Dukes, a local philanthropist, organized this event. All proceeds raised during the bake sale directly benefited the Cape Henlopen Food Basket. This food pantry was founded in 2002 and partners with the Food Bank of Delaware and local church volunteers to serve more than 200 hungry families each month.

The next Applebee’s bake sale will be held in July to help raise funds for Alex's Lemonade Stand.
