From the Red Wings' PR department:

... Red Wings Defensemen Brendan Smith To Hold Daily Twitter Contest ...

Detroit, MI… The Detroit Red Wings Foundation and Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop are pleased to announce the return of the “I Love the Red Wings” Donut, a specially-themed, heart-shaped donut decorated with red and white sprinkles. The Red Wings Donut will be available in all Michigan Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants beginning Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 17. Proceeds from the sale of the special donut will benefit The Detroit Red Wings Foundation

As part of this special fundraiser, Red Wings defensemen Brendan Smith will encourage fans to tweet a picture of themselves with the “I Love the Red Wings” donut to @TimHortonsUS, @DetroitRedWings and @bssmith7. All participants will be entered for a chance to win a $20 Tim Card, and Brendan will personally pick a winner each day of the fundraiser.

Now in its fourth year, the “I Love the Red Wings” Donut has raised over $40,000 for the Red Wings Foundation. This year local Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop owners have set a goal of raising more than $50,000 from donut sales. The limited-time-only Red Wings Donut retails for $1. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is the official coffee of the Detroit Red Wings and the official coffee served at Joe Louis Arena.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
