Frozen treats for a good cause July 26 at Dairy Queen
There are blizzards in the forecast for Thursday, July 26, but it’s all for a good cause. That’s the date of the seventh annual DQ Miracle Treat Day when Dairy Queen restaurants across the country invite friends, neighbors and families to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, an organization that raises funds for hospitals across the United States and Canada.
On that day, the Bay Village Dairy Queen at 618 Dover Center Rd. will donate all proceeds from every Blizzard treat sold to Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, one of the 170 hospitals supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals ensures that when a donation is made at a local DQ, it stays in the community to help local kids.
The Bay Village DQ has participated in Miracle Treat Day since 2006. "Miracle Treat Day has become such a tremendous celebration for us here in Bay Village, as well as a powerful fundraiser for Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital” said owner Alana Peters. "Everyone eagerly anticipates this special day during the summer when Blizzard treats and smiles all add up to helping the sick children in our community. This is an especially exciting year for our store as we are celebrating our 50th year in Bay Village.”
Dairy Queen locations throughout the United States and Canada raised more than $5 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities last year. The Bay Village store alone raised over $4,100 for Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in 2011.
If you can’t stop by the Bay Village location, many other area Dairy Queens also participate in this wonderful event. Our store will be selling coupons that day for small Blizzards that are good through the end of the year, and the proceeds will go to Miracle Treat Day.
