Quesnel Dairy Queen hosts Miracle Treat Day

Craving a cold treat? It’s the annual Dairy Queen Blizzard fundraiser

Quesnel residents hoping to satisfy their sweet tooth have an even better reason than usual to indulge: today is Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen.

Miracle Treat Day is an annual fundraiser held at the popular fast-food chain to raise money for the BC Children’s Hospital.

The Quesnel location is one of many participating in the event across the country, where the proceeds all go to a member hospital in the Children’s Miracle Network across Canada.

Since 1984, Dairy Queen has raised more than $135 million in support of the treatment of sick and injured children throughout North America.

Dan Burt, the owner operator of the local restaurant, says he’d like to raise more than last year’s total, which was $3,800.
