Peyton Manning visits Carmel Dunkin Donuts for Children’s Hospital

Customers at the newly-reopened Dunkin Donuts in Carmel got a sweet surprise at the store’s grand reopening celebration this morning. Peyton Manning stopped by the store at  7 this morning to accept a $10,000 check Dunkin Donuts presented to the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.

He greeted customers for about 40 minutes at the 1305 Range Line Rd. location. The store had been closed for nearly a year after a fire destroyed the building. Anyone who brings a new children’s toy or book or makes a donation will receive a coupon for a free medium coffee.

The reopening is more than just making donuts, the event was  also an opportunity to announce the launch of a fundraising program in November, when guests will be able to make a donation for Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital.

Mayor Brainard and WFMS were also on hand for the celebrations, the store will also give away two Colts game tickets.

The Carmel location will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
