Grand Marais Dairy Queen shares Blizzard proceeds with Gillette Children's Hospital on August 8
With frost warnings already in effect throughout our summer, a blizzard can’t be too far behind, right?
Wrong. Unless of course, it’s a Dairy Queen Blizzard.
On Thursday, August 8, a portion from every Blizzard Treat purchased at the local Dairy Queen in Grand Marais will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as part of the 8th annual Miracle Treat Day.
All of the money raised by DQ operators in Minnesota and western Wisconsin will benefit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, the nation’s first hospital for children who have disabilities.
Last year, Gillette provided care to more than 25,000 children, including two from Cook County.
“We look forward to participating in such a good cause,” said Rob Hackett, general manager and a partner in the Grand Marais Dairy Queen.
Stores throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin raised nearly $20 million on Miracle Treat day last year. Since 1984 Dairy queen has raised $97 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“This is a chance for us to give back to the community,” said Hackett, adding, “We look forward to seeing you August 8.”
