Dairy Queen and McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation invite North Bay residents to support children’s health across Canada on Miracle Treat Day
Children treated at McMaster Children’s Hospital to benefit from the net proceeds of every Blizzard Treat on Thursday, August 11.
Fans in North Bay are encouraged to continue the 20-year tradition of making miracles happen for children and their families by visiting their local DQ to celebrate Miracle Treat Day says a news release.
"Net proceeds from every Blizzard Treat purchased at participating DQ stores in North Bay will be donated to McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation, one of 12 Children’s Miracle Network hospital foundations across Canada. What’s raised locally stays local, so every dollar donated from DQ stores will go directly to the local Canadian children’s hospital foundation in each community."
In 2021, local children’s hospitals across Canada delivered care to children through nearly 3 million in-person and virtual visits. DQ employees, franchisees, volunteers and stakeholders come together throughout the year to help raise funds that allow children’s hospitals to provide the best care possible. Since the partnership began 38 years ago in 1984, DQ has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with over $46 million raised to date in Canada alone.
