TOTS GET $92K: Representatives of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar recently presented a check for $92,912 to the U.S. Marines Corps in support of its Toys for Tots program. The funds were raised during Applebee’s annual Breakfast with Santa events held on Long Island, in which 100 percent of the proceeds benefitted underprivileged children in local communities during the holiday season. There are two Applebee’s locations within the Town of Huntington. The Commack location raised $3,358 and the Huntington Station location raised $4,084. Over the past 18 years, Applebee’s locations owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises in Florida, Georgia, New Jersey and Long Island – which donated a combined total of $264,723 as a result of its 2016 Breakfast with Santa fundraiser – have raised more than $4.1 million for the Toys for Tots initiative, helping to spread holiday cheer to over 230,000 deserving children.
