February is best known as the “month of love” and the Dunkin’ Donuts South Florida team stepped up to the challenge by kicking off the Happily Ever Dunkin’ essay contest. After all, what’s better than donuts and coffee? In honor of Valentine’s Day, we launched a contest where one local fan had the opportunity to propose to his or her significant other – inside of a Dunkin’ Donuts. It was simple; all they had to do was write us to tell us who they love, why their love is unique and why they deserve a proposal. In order to make the magic happen, we recruited local jeweler, Tobak Diamonds, to make the couple’s dream a reality by supplying a voucher for a $3,000 engagement ring.
After reading through over 300 entries, we found the most unique and authentic response from a 28-year old Jupiter resident, Calen Green, which brought us all to tears. He shared how they both found each other during a difficult time in their lives where they needed guidance and support. One year later, they are each other’s best friends and Calen was more than excited to propose to his now fiancé, Kimberly Clemmer, at Dunkin’ Donuts in Juno Beach on February 12. Thanks to Rachel, Alexya and Caitlin for helping make this Valentine’s Day proposal extra sweet!
Take a look at some of the coverage that resulted from our Valentine’s Day contest!
