Treat yourself to a Blizzard® for children

Nationwide ‘Miracle Treat Day’ set for Aug. 8

CMN Logo(Sioux Falls, SD/ Fargo, ND) – The eighth annual Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day will take place on Thursday, Aug. 8, at area Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill locations. Participating locations will donate $1 or more of the proceeds from the day’s Blizzard® sales and Blizzard® coupon sales to Children’s Miracle Network benefitting Sanford Children’s.

The public is invited to stop by local Dairy Queen or DQ Grill and Chill locations and order a Blizzard®, which in turn will benefit local sick and injured children.  “Miracle Treat Day” is an opportunity for the public to savor a sweet treat support Sanford Children’s Hospitals in both Fargo and Sioux Falls, each region’s only Children’s Miracle Network hospital.

Last year’s Miracle Treat Day raised more than $186,000 for Sanford Children’s Hospitals in Sioux Falls and Fargo. Since 1984, Dairy Queen has raised more than $97 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals– making it one of the top-five contributors to the charity.

Families touched by Children’s Miracle Network will be at their local DQs throughout the day, helping with this year’s event. Participating locations include the follwing:
