Local Dairy Queen Blizzard Sales To Benefit Children's Hospital

Thursday, July 13, 2017
Five local Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants will celebrate the 13th annual DQ Miracle Treat Day on Thursday, July 27.  Donations raised through Miracle Treat Day will support the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. 
 
One dollar from every BlizzardTreat sold on July 27 at participating restaurants in Chattanooga (2118 Gunbarrel Road), Hixson (5433 Highway 153), Cleveland (275 Paul Huff Parkway), Jasper (4955 Main Street), and Blue Ridge, Ga. (380 Progress Circle) will be donated to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, one of the 170 hospitals supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals).
 
Every minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment, and one in ten children in North America is treated at CMN Hospitals each year.
CMN Hospitals raises funds to help save and improve the lives of kids treated at member hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.  Like all CMN Hospitals campaigns, donations raised will stay in the community to help local kids.
 
“Last year, our Dairy Queen partners raised more than $8,000 through the Miracle Treat Day event,” said Rebecca Brinkley, CMN Hospitals director for Children’s Hospital.  “All funds raised by participating regional locations will benefit the Chattanooga community by funding the Believe Campaign supporting the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.” 
 
Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $125 million for CMN Hospitals in local communities 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 participating DQ location on Thursday, July 27. For more information about Miracle Treat Day, visit MiracleTreatDay.com.

Thank goodness there is hardly anything today that has no solution if you keep trying and stay in the ... (click for more)
