Dunkin' Donuts hands out free Charlie cards
via Loaded Gun by Sam Baltrusis on 1/20/09
On Friday, Jan. 23, Dunkin' Donuts teams up with actor Peter Ostrum, the former child star from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," to hand out 10,000 pre-paid Charlie Cards to morning commuters from 7-10 a.m. at Boston's North Station, South Station and Back Bay.
Ostrum will work with Dunkin' Donuts in presenting one lucky commuter with a "Golden Ticket" for a year's worth of Dunkin' Donuts Coffee and a Charlie Card for unlimited subway rides on the T for one year.
Unfortunately, Oompa-Loompas are not eligible for the "Golden Ticket" prize.
To help spread their so-called "Kin' Do" spirit, Dunkin' Donuts is launching a free transportation program in January in Boston and select markets throughout the Northeast.
