Batesville — There are blizzards in the forecast for Thursday, July 26 but it’s all for a good cause. That’s the date of the 7th Annual DQ® Miracle Treat Day when the Dairy Queen® system invites friends, neighbors and families to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, an organization that raises funds for hospitals across the United States and Canada.

On that day, the Dairy Queen restaurant at St. Louis Street will donate [add in amount your store is donating: proceeds from every Blizzard Treat sold to Arkansas Childrens Hospital, one of the 170 hospitals supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals ensures that when a donation is made at a local DQ, it stays in the community to help local kids.

The Batesville Dairy Queen restaurant has participated in Miracle Treat Day for many years.  “Miracle Treat Day has become such a tremendous celebration for us here in Batesville, as well as a powerful fundraiser for Arkansas Children’s Hospital,” said owners of Dairy Queen, Paul and Sharon Strecker. “Everyone eagerly anticipates this special day during the summer when Blizzard Treats and smiles all add up to helping the sick children in our community.”

Dairy Queen locations throughout the United States and Canada raised more than $5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities last year. Through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon Campaign and other local initiatives, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $90 million since 1984 and proudly is one of the top 10 contributors to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Oreo®, still the most popular Blizzard Treat flavor of all time, will be featured as the Miracle Treat Day “Blizzard of the Day.” New Blizzard of the Month flavor Chocolate Candy Shop, as well as all currently available flavors, also will be available on Miracle Treat Day.
