Dairy Queen’s ‘Miracle Treat Day’ Supports Hospitalized Kids

DETROIT (WWJ) – Metro Detroit has been hit with a rare summer blizzard!

If you’re headed out to lunch, Thursday, it’s the perfect day to swing by a participating Dairy Queen store and pickup a Blizzard treat.

When you do, Dairy Queen will donate proceeds from each one sold to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which benefits Beaumont Children’s Hospital locally.

It’s the eighth year in a row for “Miracle Treat Day,” which raises funds for services and equipment for hospitalized children at Beaumont.

And the best part? The money raised stays right here to help kids in our area, according to Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s Matt Romkey.

“These are our kids, they’re our neighbors’ kids, they’re our coworkers kids,” Romkey said. “These funds really stay local to impact local kids; and it’s such a great resource  for the community to have Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Beaumont Children’s Hospital to really be able to provide that for the kids of our community.”
