Miracle Treat Day to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - Several Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants throughout the country will celebrate the 10th Annual Miracle Treat Day on July 30 in an effort to benefit multiple Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

For every Blizzard Treat sold at participating locations in central Illinois on Miracle Treat Day, $1 or more will be donated to St. John's Children's Hospital in Springfield.  The money raised through this program help hospitals purchase needed medical equipment and supplies, comfort items, and help fund Child Life Specialist programs.

Officials say Dairy Queen has raised more than $100 million for hospitals through fundraising efforts over the last 31 years, including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign, and other initiatives.  For more information about Miracle Treat Day, visit http://www.miracletreatday.com/.
