Dairy Queen Scoops Up Donations for Miracle Treat Day
Dairy Queen hopes to scoop up enough donations to help children in medical need. Thursday is Miracle Treat Day and Dairy Queens across the country will donate $1 or more from every Blizzard sold to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Miss Chesterfield and Miss Greater Richmond stopped by the Seminole Trail location to help spread the word.
"It's a great opportunity to get involved and raise money for the Children's Miracle Network which doesn't deny a child proper health care because of their inability to pay," said Miss Chesterfield Delesia Watson. "That's something I can really relate to because my brother was a Children's Miracle Network baby and if it weren't for them he probably wouldn't be alive today."
Canada locations are also participating in the event. Last year, Dairy Queen raised more than $5 million on Miracle Treat Day.
