To Day is Miracle Treat Day - Don't Miss Out!

Miracle Treat Day
Dairy Queen!
 "Make sure you stop by after work today."
 Today you’ll have the chance to make miracles happen for sick and injured children in your area.  Simply buy a Blizzard Treat at your local Dairy Queen and $1  from each Blizzard Treat sold will be donated to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
First began with a 10 cent sale of a then unnamed product on August 4, 1938, in Kankakee, Illinois. A father and son in the mix plant business in Green River, Illinois, had been experimenting with a soft frozen dairy product for some time. They contacted Sherb Noble, a good friend and customer, who agreed to run the "all you can eat" trial sale at his walk-in ice cream store. Within two hours, he dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert.
Thank you for caring and supporting Children's Hospitals Dairy Queen!  

"Hey all you people that are like me and can't eat daily products, you can still support Children's Network and Dairy Queen!  Buy a Blizzard for someone special, you'll make someone's day and be helping to save a life at the same time!  Thank you once again, Dairy Queen!"
