Screening of ‘The Donut King’
Ends 11:59 p.m. June 5
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a community screening of “The Donut King,” a film about a Cambodian refugee who escaped genocide and overcame poverty to build a life for himself and hundreds of other immigrant families by baking America’s favorite pastry. “The Donut King” is Ted Ngoy’s rags-to-riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multimillion-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ngoy sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet by teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979, he was living the American Dream — but a great rise often comes with a great fall. “The Donut King” is a tale of hard knocks, redemption, wealth, survival, risk — and donuts.
