I need to create a donut (for example) in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014, without whiting out the center (hole).

How do you create a donut (for example) in Adobe Illustrator CC 2014, without whiting out the center (hole).  The way I did it; I created a large circle with “fill” and for the inner circle I had to “fill” with white to cover up the fill of the outer circle. The problem is that I want a transparent background for the web.  Thank you for any help.  Joe

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
