The rain couldn’t dampen the mood inside The Hospital for Sick Children today as patients enjoyed the first ever indoor beach party. Patients and families cooled off with delicious Blizzard treats served up by Dairy Queen.
A giant DQ cone mascot, Maple Leafs mascot Carlton the Bear and Maple Leafs forward Colby Armstrong were on hand to take photos with the patients and help them with their arts and crafts projects.
The beach party marks the launch of Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day, which will take place on August 11.
Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day is a one-day, national charity drive where proceeds from Blizzards and paper balloons sold are donated to Children’s Miracle Network member children’s hospitals across Canada. Proceeds from the Greater Toronto Area and North-Central Ontario sales will benefit SickKids Foundation.
With record-breaking temperatures heating up the Greater Toronto Area, thank goodness for the cool wave moving through on August 11.
On August 11, visit your local Dairy Queen location to cool off by participating in Miracle Treat Day. Proceeds from every Blizzard® treat sold on August 11 will go towards your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, including The Hospital for Sick Children.
Place your Blizzard® order for your office or sports club in advance. Let your family and friends know that with the purchase of a Blizzard® or paper balloon, they will be supporting hospitals like SickKids. Giving never tasted so good.
Miracle Treat Day is a one-day national campaign where proceeds from Dairy Queen Blizzard® sales are donated to help make a difference in the lives of sick children. Since 1984, DQ has raised more than $84 million for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.
Enjoy cooling off with your favourite Blizzard® flavour and support SickKids. See you on August 11 at your local Dairy Queen!
Don’t forget to beat the heat and join Canadians across the country to celebrate Miracle Treat Day this Thursday, August 12. Cool off with a Blizzard® from Dairy Queen or purchase a paper balloon to help make a difference in the lives of sick children.
Miracle Treat Day is a one-day national charity drive that donates proceeds from its Blizzard® purchases to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country. There has never been a cooler way to help children’s hospitals like The Hospital for Sick Children. All proceeds raised in northern and south central Ontario will benefit SickKids.
Last year, Miracle Treat Day raised more than $300,000 for SickKids! Let’s do it again this year!
