(Long Island, NY) January 31, 2012 -- Over the past thirteen years, Applebee's Breakfast with Santa events in Nassau and Suffolk counties and at participating restaurants in northern and central New Jersey have raised a combined total of over $2.7 million for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. As in past years, this December neighborhood Applebee's donated 100% of the proceeds from each of their local events and sold paper "gift packages" bringing this year's contribution to Toys for Tots to a record-breaking $322,500. The monies helped provide happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during the holiday season. Dollars raised in each community benefitted that local community. In Nassau and Suffolk counties alone, over $135,000 was raised.
