FROM CINCINNATI BENGALS PUBLIC RELATIONS
BENGALS PARTNER WITH DUNKIN' DONUTS AND AMF
FOR MUG PROMOTION TO BENEFIT YOUTH
The Bengals have partnered with team sponsor Dunkin' Donuts and the Anthony Muñoz Foundation for a collectors' edition coffee mug promotion, with a portion of proceeds designated to support the Foundation's work with area youth.
Beginning today, all 35 Dunkin' Donut locations in Greater Cincinnati and Dayton will sell the mugs, which feature a likeness of Muñoz, the Bengals' Hall of Fame offensive tackle. The mugs are priced at $2.99, and through Feb. 15, 2015, they can be refilled an unlimited amount of times for 78 cents per refill. The 78-cent price commemorates uniform No. 78, which Muñoz wore for the Bengals during his stellar career (1980-92, with 11 Pro Bowl selections).
"We're happy to participate in this promotion acknowledging one of our greatest-ever players," said Bengals executive vice-president Katie Blackburn. "Dunkin' Donuts in Greater Cincinnati and Dayton have been great partners. Anthony's foundation has been a community leader for many years now, and we greatly value its work."
Established as a non-profit organization in April of 2002, the Muñoz Foundation's mission is to engage the Tri-State region to impact youth mentally, physically, and spiritually. The Foundation reaches out to underprivileged youth to recognize, and reward those who excel in all phases of life. Through the foundation's eight impact programs, which include scholarship opportunities, character camps, a tutoring program and a leadership seminar, thousands of area youth are empowered.
The Bengals are in their second year with area Dunkin' Donuts locations as a team sponsor.
"Dunkin' Donuts is proud to partner with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, and we are happy to serve and support our communities," said Lynne McKune, Field Marketing Manager.
"Dunkin' has earned the No. 1 ranking for customer loyalty in the coffee category by Brand Keys for eight years running, and our Greater Cincinnati guests are a big part of that."
