Honey Dew Launches #IFoundJoe Social Media Giveaway
One Grand prize winner to receive Apple® Sport Watch, plus weekly giveaways

Plainville, MA— In honor of its returning partnership with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF), Honey Dew Donuts® is pleased to announce the launch of its annual #IFoundJoe social media contest, where customers have the chance to win the grand prize of an Apple® Sport Watch!

Now through October 31, customers can seek out the “Official Coffee of The Joe Andruzzi Foundation” life size cut-out at participating Honey Dew shops, snap a picture with it and post it to their Instagram or Twitter accounts using the hashtag #IFoundJoe. Participants are also asked to use the hashtag #HDD plus the town of the store they’re in – for example, #HDDPlainville, #HDDWorcester, etc. – to be considered for entry.

In addition to the grand prize of a brand new Apple® Sport Watch, each week, one winner will be randomly selected to win prizes such as Honey Dew mugs, coffee, gift cards and more. At the end of October, one grand prize winner will be selected to receive the watch.

The contest marks the second year in a row Honey Dew has been a partner of the Mansfield, MA-based nonprofit organization – started by former New England Patriot, three-time Super Bowl Champion and cancer survivor, Joe Andruzzi, and his wife, Jen – which is dedicated to providing financial and emotional support to cancer patients and their families.

“We’re excited for our customers to participate in this contest as it enhances our partnership with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation,” said Honey Dew Founder and Owner, Richard Bowen. “We look forward to seeing what this ongoing relationship with such an altruistic organization will continue to bring in years to come.”

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.
