Applebee’s and North Dakota DECA
2019 marked the 15th year of this prosperous partnership. Applebee’s opens its stores across multiple North Dakota locations to share the restaurant industry with DECA Members. DECA Members staff all roles needed in the front of the house to serve thousands of pre-sold breakfast tickets. This work experience provides funds for the Applebee’s Scholarship which is awarded to one deserving North Dakota DECA Member each March.
As of 2019, Applebee’s has helped North Dakota DECA raise $50,000.
Sanford Health and North Dakota DECA
At our Fall Leadership Conference in October 2019, we partnered with Sanford Health to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Sanford Foundation through pink lemonade sales. Sanford Health provided pink lemonade materials and North Dakota DECA Members staffed the station in an effort to raise awareness and money for the cause.
Thank you for the awesome learning opportunity, Sanford Health!
We thank these Business Partners for their 2021-2022 support!
