Kids Benefit When You Purchase a Blizzard® from Dairy Queen on Miracle Treat Day, July 27

WHAT:
Dairy Queen restaurants in northern Nevada will participate in Miracle Treat Day Thursday, July 27. Throughout the day, $1 or more from every Blizzard treat sold at participating DQ stores will be donated to support northern Nevada’s Children's Miracle Network Hospital (CMNH), Renown Children’s Hospital.
 
Media is invited to meet one of the Children’s Hospital patients that is helped by community donations and also see some of the life-saving equipment purchased with the money raised at past Miracle Treat Days.
              
WHEN:
Wednesday, July 26, 10 a.m.
 
VISUALS AND INTERVIEWS:
Meet Tennyson Hunter, a 10-year-old Renown Children’s Hospital patient diagnosed with Evan’s Syndrome, a rare disease where the autoimmune system attacks red blood cells. Interview a nurse at Renown Children’s Hospital and see some of the life-saving equipment purchased with community money raised at Dairy Queen.
 
WHY:      
Nationally, Dairy Queen and CMNH have partnered for more than 30 years raising money to help children across North America. In that time, Dairy Queen has raised more than $125 million for CMNH. Locally, DQ restaurants have raised more than $178,000 for Renown Children’s Hospital since 1988. More than $18,000 was raised by local Dairy Queens during last year’s Miracle Treat Day.
