Miracle Treat Day Is Today!

Posted On: 08/04/2010

Today — Thursday, August 5 — is Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day! Participating DQs will donate $1 or more for every Blizzard sold today to Gillette through Children’s Miracle Network. Since 1989, DQ has raised more than 2.5 million for Gillette. Donations support life-changing care for children who have disabilities and complex medical conditions.

You can help make miracles happen today! It’s easy. Here’s what you can do:

    Buy a Blizzard!  Invite a friend, treat your whole office,or enjoy a special outing with your family today. For every Blizzard sold, DQ will donate $1 or more to Gillette through Children’s Miracle Network.
    Visit www.gillettechildrens.org/blizzard.  There, you can find your participating DQ, submit your Miracle Treat Day photos for a chance to win FREE DQ treats, and spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.

Earlier today, DQ kicked off Miracle Treat Day by visiting Gillette patients — the very kids who will benefit from this special day. Of course, every child received a Blizzard to enjoy!

Gillette patient Katelynn Kenney was excited to get her Blizzard — and meet Miss Minnesota Kathryn Knuttila! Knuttila helped DQ pass out Blizzards to Gillette inpatients this morning.

 The DQ Blizzard mobile paid a visit to Gillette, too!
