Although the new Nutter Butter Blizzard Treat is the Blizzard of the Month for August, Oreo Cookie will be the Miracle Treat Day “Blizzard of the Day.” The Oreo Blizzard Treat still holds the title as the most popular Blizzard flavor since the first Blizzard Treat was served upside down with a spoon in 1985. All currently featured flavors will be available on Miracle Treat Day.
The Dairy Queen system is one of the top 10 contributors to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, having raised $86 million since 1984. Last year on Miracle Treat Day, Dairy Queen locations across the United States and Canada raised nearly $5 million for 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given, it stays in the community, helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of its mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
