Mark Your Calendars for June 5th

Last week I had a procedure done on my ear - stitches and all. It's horrific looking. But to treat myself for being such a good girl, I picked up a donut and iced coffee on my way to pick up the boys. If only I planned the procedure better, for June 5th. I could have gotten a FREE DONUT with the purchase of that Iced Coffee.

What's so special about June 5th? Oh, it is just National Donut Day! So Dunkin' Donuts has a
sweet nationwide offer to help Americans celebrate the joy and fun of donuts. On June 5, 2009, participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout the country will give every customer a free donut of their choice, with the purchase of any beverage - limit one per customer.

Also on National Donut Day, Dunkin’ Donuts will announce the winner of its first-ever “Create Dunkin’s Next Donut” contest. From nearly 130,000 donut contest creations submitted online, one of 12 finalists will win a $12,000 grand prize and have their winning donuts sold in Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the country.

About National Donut Day:
National Donut Day, held the first Friday of June each year, was started by the Chicago Salvation Army more than 70 years ago. According to Dunkin’ Donuts’ Brand Marketing Officer Frances Allen, the day holds particular relevance in 2009. “From office meetings to Sunday get-togethers, donuts are one of those foods that lift people's spirits and bring genuine delight to any situation. And now more than ever, Americans are seeking those small moments of happiness," she said. "We hope our free donut offer will create an opportunity for people to celebrate donuts and bring some extra happiness to their day.”
