“National Donut Day is our favorite way to celebrate one of our nation’s beloved treats”, says Honey Dew Founder and President, Richard Bowen. “This year we’re happy to give customers an (Up)Beat Cancer donut on the house with a medium beverage purchase! The (Up)Beat Cancer donut is a tasty way to bring awareness to the charitable work the Joe Andruzzi Foundation accomplishes all year in supporting families braving and battling cancer.”
Celebrated the first Friday in June every year, National Donut Day was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to recognize those who served donuts to American soldiers in France and Germany during World War I. In recent years, it has become one of the nation’s favorite food holidays!

ABOUT THE JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION:
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation, founded in 2008, is committed to providing help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by contributing financial and emotional support when it is needed most, as well as funding pediatric brain cancer research. Joe Andruzzi, a former three-time Super Bowl winning offensive guard with the New England Patriots, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Burkitt’s lymphoma in 2007 and was treated at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Disease-free less than a year later, Joe dedicated his life to supporting other cancer patients and funding life-saving research. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is Joe and his wife Jen’s second philanthropic effort; in 2003, they started the C.J. Buckley Brain Cancer Research Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital in memory of C.J. Buckley, a young man with an inoperable brain tumor who touched their hearts before losing his battle in 2002. The fund supports much-needed, innovative research into the molecular nature of pediatric brain tumors, novel treatment therapies and alternatives to multiple surgeries.
