    They're saying it's the largest box of Entenmann's donuts ever created and it's being unveiled at a celebration in Manhattan honoring the 75th annual National Donut Day.

    Entenmann's plans to donate $25,000 to The Salvation Army at the event Friday at Madison Square Park.

    Organizers will also share a Proclamation Letter signed by Mayor Bloomberg.
