Dunkin’ Donuts is supporting the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund for the 13th year to help increase the chances of survival among cancer patients worldwide. Dunkin’ Donuts and its franchisees maintain an ongoing commitment to the Jimmy Fund, having helped raise a total of $8 million since 1998. This year, Dunkin’ Donuts will continue to support the Jimmy Fund and the fight against cancer through several fundraising events and campaigns that will take place throughout the month of August.
Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees in New England have raised millions of dollars for the Jimmy Fund through proceeds generated from the annual Dunkin’ Donuts George Mandell Memorial Golf Tournament and auction since the tournament’s inception in 1998. The event was created by the Dunkin’ Donuts New England Distribution Center (NEDCP), whose members are comprised of franchise owners, in honor of George Mandell, a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee who died of cancer. Historically, this tournament has been the Jimmy Fund’s highest-grossing fundraising tournament and each year it continues to pay tribute to members of the Dunkin’ Donuts community impacted by cancer.
