Ice Cream lovers can feel a little less guilty when buying a sweet treat on Thursday at Dairy Queen because the fast food chain has teamed with Children’s Miracle Network to donate a portion of Blizzard sales for its Miracle Treat Day.
The company will donate $1 or more (amounts vary by location and size purchased) to local branches of the hospital network for every sale of its iconic dessert treat.
