Binghamton woman wins $1,000 from local Dunkin' Donuts

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Dunkin' Donuts in Binghamton is helping to kickstart a lucky person's Friday with quite the surprise.

Shakia Simmons of Binghamton was out running errands Friday when she stopped into the Dunkin' Donuts on Main Street.

There, she was randomly chosen by Dunkin' management to receive a $1,000 check, gift cards and some swag.

Its part of a promotion taking place across the country to roll out the new Frozen Dunkin' Coffee.

Free samples were being handed out to other customers on Friday.

Simmons typically stops there for coffee 3 or 4 times per week.

She says she was shocked to win.

"It will help me in more ways than you can imagine. I had a family member that just died in Jamaica. So, things have been kind of behind right now. So, that thousand dollars just put me back on track. Without a doubt, back on track," she said.

Simmons says she'll use some of the money to pay for a birthday party for her daughter Sarai who turns 5 next month.

Dunkin' Donuts plans to hand out more free frozen coffee samples at its Main Street location Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
