Applebee�s Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants, located throughout New Jersey and Long Island, will open their doors at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 3rd to receive an honored guest, Santa, and are inviting children, friends and families to join the jolly man at a special fundraiser breakfast. A limited number of tickets are available for a $10 donation per person (children under 2 are admitted free) which includes breakfast compliments of Applebee�s, goodies, raffle tickets for door prizes and the opportunity to take a photo with Santa (bring a camera).  One-hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the U.S. Marine Corps �Toys for Tots� Program.  Advance reservations are required.

Over the past twelve years, Applebee's Breakfast with Santa events on Long Island and at participating restaurants in New Jersey have raised a combined total of over $2.4 million for Toys for Tots in order to help provide happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. Dollars raised in each community benefit that local community. This year�s goal is $325,000 and to help reach that goal, Applebee�s is also offering paper �gift packages� with any donation of $1 or more. All proceeds also go directly to �Toys for Tots� and each colorful gift pack will be prominently displayed within the restaurant. 

To purchase tickets to Breakfast with Santa while seats are still available, call or stop by Applebee�s today.  Or, to find a participating Applebee�s close to your neighborhood, visit
