NORTHBRDGE, Mass. - Dunkin’ Donuts, in partnership with the Norfolk Lions Club, recently raised $5,000 for the Boston-based Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Fund at a golf event at the Shining Rock Golf Club in Northbridge.
Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee Frank Barounis sponsored the event, which was hosted by the Norfolk Lions Club. Dunkin’ Donuts and the Lions Club presented the donation to the Joslin Diabetes Center.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of Lions Clubs across Massachusetts," said Jessica Orndorff, development officer for community-generated events at the Joslin Diabetes Center.
"The Norfolk Lions and their supporters like Dunkin Donuts are really making a difference through their donation to Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Fund. Unfortunately, diabetes affects more and more members of our community each year, and the Lions have proven an important civic partner in contributing to research to one day eradicate this disease.”
