NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Last week, Dunkin' Donuts held a
charity brunch with New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning that raised
approximately $90,000 to support ongoing Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The
proceeds raised will be used to provide for those communities still recovering
from the devastation of the storm. The Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins
Community Foundation Hurricane Sandy fundraiser event, held at Il Villaggio
restaurant in Carlstadt, New Jersey, brought together more than 170 Metro New
York area Dunkin' Brands franchisees and guests to support those affected by
the destruction of the hurricane that swept through the region in October of
this year.

The event included a question and answer session with Eli Manning, who talked
about a wide range of topics, including Sandy's impact on the area. Manning
also generously donated to the cause, matching money raised from an auction
held during the event. The event also included a VIP Meet-n-Greet with Manning
and a Tricky Tray auction with items generously donated by brand partners.

"We are extremely proud to have been able to contribute to this important
cause during the holiday season, a time when this need is felt by so many
people," said Russ Romeo, Dunkin' Brands Field Marketing Director in the
Mid-Atlantic Region. "Our region in particular was devastated by Hurricane
Sandy, and we hope that this donation from The Dunkin' Donuts and
Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation will serve those who are working hard
every day to rebuild our communities."

The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation focus is to serve our
neighborhoods by taking care of their basic needs—safety, hunger relief and
children's health. Since 2006, the Foundation has donated more than $2.5
million to organizations that share its mission of providing food, safety and
