Langley eateries part of Miracle Treat Day Thursday

Aug. 13 is Miracle Treat Day and the forecast calls for Blizzards.

Need an excuse for a cool summer treat?

Every DQ Blizzard sold on Aug. 13 will benefit  a children’s hospital.

BC Children’s Hospital receives funds from this annual campaign, now in its 13th years and is one of 14 children’s hospitals across Canada that are part of the Children’s Miracle Network.

On Miracle Treat Day proceeds from every Blizzard sold are donated to the network.

The frozen desserts are available at Dairy Queens and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants.

“Every day, more than 4,900 children visit a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital for treatment and they need help from each community in the province,” said John Hartman, chief operating officer, Canada, Children’s Miracle Network.

Since the partnership between Dairy Queen® and Children’s Miracle Network began in 1984, Dairy Queen® has become a top contributor with $100 million raised to date in support of sick and injured children across North America.
