Dairy Queen's Miracle Treat Day helps serve hope for kids Oct. 28
By: Lee Health Foundation
For more than 37 years, DQ has partnered with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the U.S. and Canada to serve hope for kids and their families. Donations from BLIZZARD Treat sales provide urgent, high-quality care kids need to thrive and offer their families comfort in knowing what's next. DQ believes that when you can positively change the health of even one child, you can create a ripple effect felt by our communities for years to come.
"Not only are DQs serving a delicious treat, but they are also providing hope for local children," said Amy Frith, director of Barbara's Friends – Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida's cancer program. "Every BLIZZARD Treat ordered will help improve the wellbeing of Southwest Florida families."
