Now through Sunday, September 29 at 8 p.m., as the restaurant prepares for its upcoming remodel, items that currently adorn the restaurant’s walls will be up for auction. All proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley.

“Since we began remodeling our restaurants, we’ve had hundreds of patrons come in and purchase memorabilia that pay homage to their favorite stars and local teams,” said Stephanie Griffin, director of marketing and public relations, T.L.

“The Applebee’s décor auction will help make life better for children in Brewster and the surrounding community,” said Thomas Conklin, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley. “Funds raised through the auction will help grant wishes to children facing life-threatening medical conditions. We are deeply grateful to Applebee’s and their customers for their support and generosity.”
