Appearance Alert: Rachael Ray and Dunkin' Donuts Launch National Card Drive

On this Saturday, December 1, 2007, Rachael Ray and Dunkin' Donuts will be providing holiday cheer and free transportation for New York City shoppers as part of the launch of the National Card Drive for a non-profit organzation caled Soldiers' Angels.

Rachael will be at the New York Waterway Terminal on the Hudson River (specifically at 39th and the Hudson River) to greet holiday shoppers. Shoppers can get free samples of Gingerbread Lattes and Hot Chocolate and hop aboard old-fashioned trolleys providing free transportation for NY Waterway Terminal passengers to top shopping destinations in Manhattan.

Here's the 411:

Rachael will announce a one-ton donation of Dunkin' Donuts coffee to Soldiers' Angels, one of the nation's largest volunteer-based nonprofit military support organizations providing aid and comfort to our nation's deployed soldiers and their families. Rachael Ray will also greet armed services personnel and announce a national holiday card drive with Dunkin' Donuts and Soldiers' Angels.

New York City holiday shoppers will be urged to fill out holiday cards that will be sent to service men and women stationed outside the U.S. Shoppers can then hop on the Gingerbread Express, a trolley service offering free rides to top Manhattan shopping destinations.

  1. I'd love to see Rachael Ray! Which one of the ferry terminals will she be at?

  2. Anony, Thanks for your question - I updated the post to show that she will be at 39th and the Hudson River. I hope you can make it out there and come back to tell us how it was!

  3. My name is Jan and I am with Soldiers' Angels. We are thrilled about what Rachael Ray and Dunkin Donuts are doing for our men and women serving. This is going to bring many smiles to faces that won't be home for Christmas.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, Jan, and thanks for helping out such a great organization.
