Today only — help B.C. Children’s Hospital by enjoying a Blizzard at Parksville Dairy Queen

It's Treat Day at Dairy Queen restaurants across B.C.

Dairy Queen fans are encouraged to visit the Parksville restaurant today to mark the 14th annual Miracle Treat Day.

According to a news release from Dairy Queen, proceeds from every Blizzard treat sold today will be donated to B.C. Children’s Hospital, one of 12 children’s hospitals across Canada supported by Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). The funds raised in B.C. will support the urgent health needs of sick and injured children treated at B.C. Children’s Hospital.

“Dairy Queen restaurants across the province have been proud supporters of Miracle Treat Day and B.C. Children’s Hospital for 14 years now,” said Marsha Dillon, AVP Western Operations Dairy Queen and Orange Julius Canada Inc. “We’re always amazed by the support shown by our customers and encourage everyone to come by for a Blizzard treat (today).”

“BC Children’s Hospital receives more than 230,000 patient visits each year, and those children and families benefit from the tremendous support of Miracle Treat Day and Dairy Queen fans,” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation. “On August 11, we encourage everyone to visit their nearest Dairy Queen for a Blizzard treat to help make the 14th annual Miracle Treat Day a success.”

Since the partnership between Dairy Queen and Children’s Miracle Network began in 1984, Dairy Queen has become a top contributor with $115 million raised to date in support of sick and injured children across North America.
