Blue Devil Crew Fundraiser at Applebee's
Everyone has to eat, right? Why not do just that and help the Huntington High School crew team at the same time? The Blue Devils are holding a daylong fundraiser at the Huntington Applebee's on Route 110 (near Barnes & Noble) on Wednesday, September 29 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Applebee's will donate 10 percent of the entire bill of diners who present a special flyer to their server to the Huntington crew team. Even takeout orders will generate a donation to the Blue Devils.
Huntington crew is a Long Island and state power with a growing national reputation. Organizers of the fundraiser are hoping that community members will turnout at their convenience at any time during the day. Diners can sit wherever they want and will be able to order off of the regular menu. All they have to do is present the event flyer.
Flyers are available by logging onto the Huntington School District website at www.hufsd.edu. Click on the "Athletics" link and then on "Forms & Files" to view and/or download the document.
Funds generated by the event will be put to good use. "The money will go to repair the launches that follow the rowers when they practice, as well as providing additional safety equipment like VHF radios," said Marc Jensen, the Huntington crew team's head coach.
Applebee's is located at Route 110N at Schwab Road. The restaurant's phone number is 427-3504.
