Dairy Queen Hosting DQ Miracle Treat Day Thursday

August 7, 2007

Feel guilt free by treating your taste buds to a Dairy Queen Blizzard® on Thursday, August 9 for DQ Miracle Treat Day, when all proceeds from Blizzard sales at participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® stores around the country directly benefit 170 Childrens Miracle Network hospitals, including Columbus Childrens Hospital.

The second annual DQ Miracle Treat Day ends DQ Miracle Treat Week, a week of ice cream inspired fun which began with a Blizzard Taste Test on Monday at Columbus Childrens Hospital. During the taste test, a panel of official Blizzard testers including preschoolers, Childrens staff members, local celebrities and Miss Ohio 2007 sampled and gave feedback on upcoming flavors as well as old favorites.
