Forecast calls for blizzards in Langley

Proceeds from tasty treat will go to B.C. Children's Hospital

When is a forecast of blizzards good for British Columbia? Today (July 26) when the community comes together for the annual Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day.

During Miracle Treat Day, Dairy Queen locations from across the province will donate proceeds from every Blizzard sold to B.C. Children’s Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network — a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children.

Last year, Dairy Queen locations in B.C. raised $348,735 for B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Dairy Queen has been a supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network since 1984, raising more than $90 million to date.

“We are grateful that Dairy Queen organizes the Miracle Treat Day every year to benefit B.C.’s kids, and children across Canada and the U.S.” said Teri Nicholas, president and CEO of B.C. Children’s Hospital.

“The funds that Miracle Treat Day raise will help our caregivers meet the urgent health needs of children in B.C. and the Yukon.”
