Your neighborhood Donut Bank Bakeries are locally owned and operated by real people from right here in the Tri-State. We were married here, we’ve raised our families here, and we’re dedicated to making our community a better place.
It’s one of the most tragic and most baffling medical conditions to strike the very young: Progeria, or Hutchinson Gilford Progeria Syndrome. Progeria strikes children in infancy or shortly thereafter, and the victims age at an incredibly accelerated rate, dying of stroke or heart failure at an average age of 13 years. For more information about Progeria click hear to visit the Progeria Research Foundation website.
Donut Bank hosts the Sarah Kennedy GOLF FOR PROGERIA Tournament each year, helping to raise thousands of dollars for research into the genetic causes of Progeria, and potential treatments to help save the lives of these wonderful children.
3rd Annual Donut Eating Challenge
A "Hole" Lotta fun!
For the second year in a row, Evansville resident Jack Shepard won a $1,000 prize for Holly's House by eating 72 donut holes in two minutes and 50 seconds!
The Donut Hole Eating Challenge was held on November 13th at the Donut Bank on Green River Road. It was the 3rd year for Donut Bank to sponsor the contest aimed to benefit a local charity. A total of 12 charities competed in the event.
Holly’s House is an Evansville-based child and adult advocacy center that provides a safe refuge for victims of sexual crime and their families to talk with authorities and receive counseling while abusers are pursued for prosecution.
New this year was the "Open Division" where 12 additional contestants competed for free donuts and Donut Bank coffee for a year! Evansville Resident Jim Maloney won the Open Division by being first to finish all 72 donut holes in two minutes and 45 seconds.
As the Charity and Open division Donut Hole Eating Champs, Shepard and Maloney each received trophies topped with a donut. Both stated the trophies would be displayed in a very special place within their homes for all to see.
Be sure to look for our champs to return to defend their titles at our 2011 Donut Hole Eating Challenge!
Helping Our Neighbors
Many bakeries sell their day-old donuts at discounted prices. We’ve found a better use for them. Every day-old donut from each of our eight stores is given to local shelters, and to the Food Bank, to help those who need it most.
As part of our commitment to the community, Donut Bank offers extra discounts to area schools, churches and civic organizations for fundraising efforts. Donuts and donut balls are fun and easy to sell! We can help make your fundraising event a success. Call 426-0011 today for more information.
