Dairy Queen Sells Blizzards For A Cause

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – As if anyone needed another good reason to eat ice cream.

For the sixth consecutive year, Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day invites people in Metro Detroit to help raise funds for services and equipment for hospitalized children.

On Thursday, July 26, participating Dairy Queens in Metro Detroit will donate proceeds from the sale of each Blizzard Treat sold to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Beaumont Children’s Hospital.

Beaumont Foundation Associate Vice President Tom McGannon said Miracle Treat Day is a great way to keep people cool and raise money for kids.

“With this year being the warmest on record, Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day is coming at a perfect time to help cool people down,” Tom McGannon said. “We appreciate our DQ partners and their ongoing support to raise funds that help local kids through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”

In previous years, participating Dairy Queen locations throughout the United States and Canada raised $5.5 million for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The chain is one of the top 10 contributors to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and has raised more than $92 million since 1984.
