On Thursday, July 25, 2019, all Siouxland DQ locations participated in DQ® Miracle Treat Day. A day where they encouraged the local community to visit their restaurant and purchase a Blizzard treat to benefit UnityPoint St. Luke's Children's Miracle Network.
For every Blizzard treat sold on DQ® Miracle Treat Day, $1.00 will be donated to UnityPoint St. Luke’s. Children’s Miracle Hospitals® (CMNH) raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada including UnityPoint St. Luke’s.
“At Dairy Queen, we love to see kids focus on being kids,” said Steve Hill. “We do this to help save and improve the lives of children treated at UnityPoint St. Luke’s. Together, with the help of our local DQ fans, we’re able to help kids right here in our community get the care they need. That is a powerful partnership!
Last year, locally owned and operated Dairy Queen restaurants across the U.S. and Canada combined to raise more than $4 million on Miracle Treat Day for their local CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $150 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.
