Miracle Treat Day lends helping hand

“Support the local Dairy Queen and see how much money we can raise this year.”

Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen is back on Aug. 9 and as always, money from every Blizzard sold goes toward the BC Children’s Hospital, one of 14 Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals across the country.

The Clearwater location of Dairy Queen has been participating in Miracle Treat Day for 16 years now, with 410 Blizzards being sold last year alone, adding up to $3,200 for the Children’s charity.

“Definitely come out and buy a Blizzard so that we can make as much money as we can for the children’s hospital,” said Darlene Reid, store manager of Clearwater’s Dairy Queen.

“Support the local Dairy Queen and see how much money we can raise this year.”

According to information provided by Dairy Queen, every minute 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital for treatment, with the hospitals relying on community donations to make sure all patients get the best care available.

Since the partnership began in 1984, Dairy Queen has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with more than $135 million raised to-date in support of sick and injured children across North America.
