'Miracle Treats' to benefit UI Children's Hospital

The forecast calls for "Blizzards for everybody!" on Thursday, Aug. 13, when ice cream lovers will raise funds for kids in need during the fourth annual "DQ Miracle Treat Day."

During the special day, participating Dairy Queen locations will donate proceeds from the sale of every Blizzard to University of Iowa Children's Hospital through Children's Miracle Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals.

Last year on Miracle Treat Day, participating Dairy Queens throughout the United States and Canada raised more than $4 million.

For more information, visit or call Children's Miracle Network at 319-335-8484.
