For each $1 donation to Make-A-Wish guests will receive a
Make-A-Wish Star Donut as a thank you
SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Dunkin’ and Make-A-Wish Central New York today celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Make-A-Wish Star Donut campaign which symbolizes the continuation of a community initiative designed to help make the wishes of local children come true.
Beginning on Thursday, September 1, guests who donate $1 to Make-A-Wish at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in Central New York will receive a specially-crafted Make-A-Wish Star Donut, while supplies last. All proceeds will benefit local Make-A-Wish chapters.
Launched in 2013, Dunkin’s Star Donut campaign has raised nearly $650,000 for Make-A-Wish Central New York.
“Dunkin’ is pleased to celebrate a decade of support for Make-A-Wish Central New York, an organization that works day-in and day-out to help make the wishes of local children come true,” said Dunkin’ Franchisee Tom Santurri. “I encourage Central New York residents to enjoy a special treat while supporting a non-profit that is so important to the children and families in our community.”
The star-shaped specialty donut, which is topped with blue icing and white sprinkles in honor of Make-A-Wish, is available at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in Central New York through September 12.
“For 10 years the Dunkin’ Star Donut campaign has had a tremendous impact on our chapter and the critically ill Central New York children we serve,” said Make-A-Wish Central New York President and CEO Diane Kuppermann. “The 10th anniversary of this yummy treat will once again bring smiles to everyone who participates, as each location and their generous guests continue to help make wishes come true across our 15-country region. We are grateful for and proud of our partnership with Dunkin’ and their guests. It’s true. Wishes run on Dunkin’!”
