IMPORTANT: HELP Applebee's Restaurants to Cure HSP & PLS

We're organizing a national fundraiser around Rare Disease Day with Applebee's Restaurants to build awareness of Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia and Primary Lateral Sclerosis and raise funds for future research.

Participating is simple:

1. Call your local Applebee's to find out if they participate in the "Dining to Donate" program. If so, pick up and fill out the form they require and return it to the General Manager. Find your local Applebee's here:

2. Applebee's will contact you to schedule a date and time for your fundraising event, ideally on or around February 28.

3. Applebee's will provide you with an invitation for your fundraising event to reproduce and distribute.

4. Promote the event in your community and pass out the invitations to as many friends, family members, co-workers and neighbors as possible.

5. On the event date chosen, your guests should present their personal invitations to the Applebee's server before service, and Applebee's will donate a percentage of the invitation holder's food and beverage purchases to the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation.

6. At the event, you will have the opportunity to raise awareness of HSP & PLS and the challenges faced by patients and families as well as the importance of Spastic Paraplegia Foundation research.
