This past holiday season, the Dunkin’ Brands Joy in Childhood Foundation celebrated #GivingTuesday in a big way, announcing $2 million in grants to 150 nonprofit groups that bring joy to children battling hunger or illness.

Earlier in November, the Foundation’s Mid-Atlantic chapter held its second annual gala at the Edison Ballroom in Times Square, featuring the swank theme of the Broadway show “Guys and Dolls.”

Guests dined, danced and bid on exceptional sports memorabilia and Broadway show tickets offered through a silent auction.

The title sponsor was the DECK Group: Konse-Angelo, Teddy and Peter.

We are pleased to share some of the photos from this wonderful event.

Later this winter, the Foundation’s Northeast chapter will hold its own gala, with a Roaring ‘20s Great Gatsby theme at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. Proceeds raised from tickets, raffles and the silent auction will benefit local children's health and hunger organizations.
