Some Guys Have All the Luck: How a Donut Run Netted a Local Man $1,000

Like many residents across the city Tuesday morning, Edward Gomulka wanted to get some donuts. He got them, and a whole lot more, thanks to a special promotion being put on by Dunkin' Donuts. Not only did he walk out with breakfast, he walked out with $1,000, a Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing System (with some Dunkin' Donuts K-Cups® to go with it) and a month's supply of iced coffee.

Not bad for a mid-morning trip to the local donut shop.

This was the latest installment of Dunkin' Donuts' "Iced Coffee Cash & DDash" promotion, which has seen the company give away the same contest package in different cities across the country. Tuesday morning, the new Dunkin' Donuts at South Shepherd and Fairview was the lucky location waiting to spring some cash and iced coffee on an unsuspecting donut lover.

When asked how he felt, Gomulka kept it simple.

"Wow, I was not expecting this," he said. "I was just here for a couple of donuts!"
