The GOODS from Lucky’s Doughnuts
Vancouver, BC | For the third year running, Lucky’s Doughnuts has partnered with Dining Out For Life to create a one-of-a-kind “DOFL Doughnut” to mark BC’s largest restaurant and hospitality fundraiser.
On Thursday, March 30, all proceeds from sales of Lucky’s Doughnuts’ seasonal Sakura cherry will benefit Dining Out For Life in support of meal and nutrition programs for individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS and other co-existing illnesses.
Lucky’s Doughnuts’ Sakura is a classic Bismarck-style doughnut filled with a white chocolate and matcha pastry cream, drizzled with a Sakura and strawberry glaze and topped edible fondant flowers and dried Sakura. Each doughnut is individually packed in a festive pink doughnut box. Price: $5 benefitting Dining Out For Life. Available at both Lucky’s Doughnuts locations: 2902 Main Street and 2198 W. 4th Ave. in Kits as of 7am.
This generous and delicious initiative is in addition to participating restaurants across the Lower Mainland who will be donating 25% of their food sales to Dining Out For Life on Thursday, March 30.
Over the past 23 years, Dining Out For Life has raised over $3.2 million, with proceeds directly benefiting the programs and services provided free-of-charge by registered not-for-profit A Loving Spoonful. These include:
– An average of 100,000 meals per year delivered to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Metro Vancouver, with more than 70% of the families on the service headed by a single mother
– Wellness Program nutritional counselling and meal planning
– People helped through the charities’ programs are often affected by multiple and co-existing illnesses such as cancer, hepatitis C, heart disease and mental illness
On Thursday, March 30, 2017, join thousands of doughnut lovers and restaurant guests who are Doing Good by Dining Out.?? An up-to-date list of participating restaurants is available at www.diningoutforlife.ca.

ABOUT 49th Parallel
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters sources and roasts the world’s finest coffees. We choose our beans carefully, buying green coffee directly from farmers and co-ops to create relationships that extend far beyond the growing season. Our expert roasters take each coffee lot to its peak potential, grading and tasting until the flavour profile and subtle nuances of that particular bean are released. Coffee is seasonal, so our menu changes throughout the year to reflect the growing cycle and ensure every 49th Parallel customer experiences exceptional freshness and flavour from farm to cup.
ABOUT Lucky’s Doughnuts
In the summer of 2012, 49th Parallel launched Lucky’s Doughnuts, because, really, what goes better with coffee than a French Cruller, an Old Fashioned or an Apple Fritter? Our original recipes and seasonal creations continue to amaze customers with exciting and unexpected flavour combinations, taking doughnuts from the everyday to extraordinary. Lucky’s Doughnuts are made fresh from scratch throughout the day, using only the finest natural ingredients and are available exclusively at the 49th Parallel Cafés at 2902 Main Street and in 2198 West 4th Ave. in Kitsilano.
