Anne Wilson, Dunkin’ Team Supports Childhood Cancer Awareness
Grammy-nominated artist, songwriter and 2023 Dunkin’ Ambassador Anne Wilson teamed up with Dunkin to spread joy at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt on July 19. The event featured Wilson’s visit to Seacrest Studios for an intimate performance and patient-led interview followed by a donut decorating party. All celebrated the return of Dunkin’s “Gold Joy Donut” aimed at bringing happiness and support to children fighting cancer at Monroe Carell and beyond.
“I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to spend a morning with the amazing kids at Monroe Carell,” shares Wilson. “It warms my heart to bring a moment of joy to their day while we shared music, played games and had a blast decorating donuts from Dunkin’. The resilience and strength these children possess is truly inspiring and I feel blessed to have shared this experience with them. Thank you to Monroe Carrell and Dunkin’ for allowing us to create unforgettable memories.”
Now through Aug. 5, Dunkin’ is inviting its customer to “shine gold” in a joint effort to bolster the mission of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation: bring joy to children affected with illness. The Shine Gold initiative allows guests at participating Dunkin’ locations throughout Nashville to make $2 donation to the foundation, and receive a free Gold Joy Donut as an expression of gratitude.
The Gold Joy Donut pays homage to the childhood cancer awareness ribbon. Throughout Nashville, 100% of funds raised from the Dunkin’ Gold Joy Donut will be donated to local children’s hospitals like Monroe Carell.
