From Friday, Feb. 11 through Monday, Feb. 14 (Valentine’s Day), participating Tim Hortons locations throughout Michigan will be making the "I Love the Red Wings" donut available to customers for only 85-cents apiece. Proceeds from sales of the heart-shaped, red-and-white sprinkle-garnished pastries will benefit the Detroit Red Wings Foundation.
Sales from the ‘I Love the Red Wings’ donut at select Tim Hortons locations in Metro Detroit raised more than $10,000 for the Detroit Red Wings Foundation during the unique menu item’s inaugural run in February of 2010. Detroit Red Wings Foundation Overview:
