LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 2, 2018) — On Thursday, Aug. 2, participating Dairy Queen locations will come together to raise funds for Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
On Miracle Treat Day, $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating locations will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals, which raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
Donations collected on Miracle Treat Day will directly help Kentucky Children’s Hospital fund such things as vital treatments, equipment, facilities and special programs for our kids.
Last year’s Miracle Treat Day raised more than $67,000 for Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $130 million for the CMN Hospitals through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.
To help celebrate Miracle Treat Day, fans are encouraged to use #MiracleTreatDay on social media and invite others to join them in visiting a participating DQ location on Thursday, Aug. 2 and help kids get back to being kids. For more information about Miracle Treat Day, visit MiracleTreatDay.com.
