DQ supports Miracle Treat Day

Lake Country restaurant assists fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital

The Lake Country location is joining in the Miracle Treat Day fundraiser today for the BC Children’s Hospital.

Proceeds from every Blizzard ice cream treat sold at all participating DQs across the province will be donated to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, one of 14 Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals across Canada.

Lake Country RCMP and firefighters are among the dignitaries on duty at the Lake Country location today at Highway 97 and Berry Road to assist the staff in support of the fundraiser.

Since the partnership began in 1984, DQ has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with more than $125 million raised to-date.
