Thursday is a great day for a Blizzard.
BC Children’s Hospital Foundation will receive net proceeds of every Blizzard treat sold at select DQ locations across British Columbia during Miracle Treat Day, taking place Thursday, Aug. 10 (including 15 DQ outlets in Salmon Arm, Vernon, Lake Country, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Summerland, Penticton, Oliver, and Osoyoos).

“Purchasing a Blizzard at Dairy Queen on Miracle Treat Day is a fun, easy, and tasty way for British Columbians to support BC Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Rita Thodos, executive vice-president, philanthropy at BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Last year,more than 130,000 kids and youth depended on BC Children’s Hospital. No matter the size of your DQ purchase, your generosity helps fund breakthrough research and training, purchase cutting-edge equipment, and provide supportive care for seriously ill kids across BC and the Yukon. Every Blizzard sold truly makes a difference on DQ’s Miracle Treat Day.”
