Today is the Best Day of the Year to Buy a Blizzard at Dairy Queen
Happy Miracle Treat Day!
If you're craving ice cream, today (Thursday, July 28th) is the perfect day to go out and get some! It's Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen, which means that each Blizzard you buy benefits kids right here in Eastern Iowa. According to the Dairy Queen website:
"For every Blizzard® Treat sold on Miracle Treat Day at participating DQ® locations, $1 or more will be donated to local children’s hospitals through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals."
The University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital is one of those Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that will receive donations thanks to Miracle Treat Day. We work closely with the hospital every year for our Radiothon event, so we can confirm that your donations will do amazing things for sick kids and families in our area. Today's fundraiser is an incredibly easy way to help out. Just think of it as a really good excuse to treat yourself to something sweet!
