Tulsa, Oklahoma – The Donut Hole on Brookside drew a crowd as locals gathered for a free donut event, eagerly reconnecting with familiar faces after a series of troubling events at the shop.
Josie Lee Turrelle, from “The Queens Dirty Dozens,” expressed the shop’s commitment to the community, despite facing adversity in the past. The donut shop had previously hosted “The Queens Dirty Dozens” event in October 2022, which was unfortunately followed by two incidents of vandalism and theft.
