Send Us Your Miracle Treat Day Photos, Get Free Dairy Queen!

Posted On: 08/08/2010

Here at Gillette we’re still on a “sugar high,” of sorts, after the flurry of activity last Thursday, Miracle Treat Day. That’s because, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Dairy Queen Blizzard, our friends at DQ had a few NEW surprises up their sleeve for our patients, including visits from Miss America, Miss Minnesota and the famous DQ Blizzard mobile.

Miracle Treat Day is over until next summer, but there’s two ways that you still can join the fun — and support a great cause.

Submit Your Photos.  Email your Miracle Treat Day photos to and you’ll be entered to win free Dairy Queen food and treats. The contest ends at midnight tonight, so don’t wait.

Give (and Get).  Through this Tuesday, you can make an online donation to the FOX 9 Countdown to Miracles telethon. For every $25 you give, you’ll get $25 in DQ food and treat vouchers. Click here to take advantage of this sweet deal.

Here’s a few Miracle Treat Day photos our patient families have shared with us.  We can’t wait to see yours, too!  Do you have Miracle Treat Day memory or story to share?  Tell us about it by leaving a comment below.
