Dairy Queen Employees Give Big to Gillette!

Posted On: 10/23/2011

Let’s be honest – Monday isn’t always a day we look forward to.  But today, our friends at Dairy Queen enjoyed a very happy Monday, thanks to a special employee lunch hosted by Gillette and Green Mill.  The lunch is part of Dairy Queen’s annual employee giving campaign, during which employees commit to either a one-time or monthly donation to Gillette, Minnesota’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.  Launched in 2008, the annual campaign has already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that fund essential facilities and services for Gillette patients with special needs.

Gillette patient John Kuziej, 17, and his mom, Janet, joined Dairy Queen CEO John Gainor and Communications Director Dean Peters in greeting employees.

John Kuziej and his mom, Janet, enjoyed fresh pumpkin pie Blizzards in Dairy Queen's "Blizzard test kitchen."

Thanks to everyone at Dairy Queen for their generous support!
