The mid-Atlantic Burn Camp at Brethren Woods helps kids be kids through fun, games and a comfortable environment with other burn victims.
Applebee's staff is handing over 100-percent of their gratuities to the cause. They get a helping hand from area firefighters, too.
Mary Gillespie, organizer of the event and an Applebee's waitress, says, "We raised $6,000 last year and we hope to raise more this year. We're doing it all day, 11-9. It's just a great feeling to help these kids and send them to camp to be with other people."
This is the third year Applebee's has participated in the event.
