CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Miracle Treat Day has been an annual day for the past 30 years, to help raise money for Children's Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals across the country.

The way it works is simple, you enjoy a delicious Dairy Queen blizzard and $1 of every blizzard sold goes to support children and save lives at 170 children's hospitals across U.S. and Canada.

“This is a big year for us as we top $100 million in donations to CMN Hospitals. We couldn’t be prouder of our franchisees that have supported this great cause over the last 30 years,” said John Gainor, president and CEO of International Dairy Queen, Inc.  

Proceeds from blizzards purchased across Southwest Florida on Thursday, August 14th, go to benefit All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida.
