Miracle Treat Day is a special day at Dairy Queen restaurants in Saskatchewan. Cool summer treats head to a good cause this Thursday, August 11. 

Natasha Paulsen, co-owner of the Dairy Queen in Humboldt, explains that this year’s event is even more special. 

“It’s Dairy Queen’s 20th annual Miracle Treat Day which benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across Canada. During Miracle Treat Day, participating Dairy Queen locations across Canada will donate net proceeds from every Blizzard treat sold to benefit their local children’s hospital foundation.”

In Saskatchewan, the Jim Pattison Hospital for Children is the network hospital. Paulsen explains that the donations are put toward research and training, purchasing equipment, and paying for uncompensated care in support of the hospitals’ mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. 

Last year, Saskatchewan DQ operators donated just over $155,000 through Miracle Treat Day. 

Patrons can participate by picking up a Blizzard at the store on Highway 5 in Humboldt. Hours of operation are 10:30 am - 9:15 pm. Large group and business orders can be placed via email. Order forms are available for groups by requesting them at gnpaulsen@sasktel.net

Everyone is invited down to pick up their Blizzard treats and support the fantastic work happening for children at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital.
