Miracle Kid, Avery Cunha, enjoys a DQ Blizzard.

(SACRAMENTO)Dairy Queen (DQ) is serving up hope to local children and their families by helping ensure kids in 33 area counties get the care they need, when they need it. That’s why on Miracle Treat Day, Thursday, Oct. 28, DQ will donate a portion of the day’s sales to UC Davis Children’s Hospital

Greater Sacramento-area DQ locations will donate $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) at UC Davis. All funds stay local to help local children like Avery Cunha, who almost drowned but had her life saved at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. She is one of many children who have directly benefited from the continued support of partners like Dairy Queen and their customers.

Miracle Treat Day 2021 is Oct. 28.

Children’s hospitals are on the front lines when it comes to protecting the health of future generations and DQ wants to help foster the business owners, creators and leaders of tomorrow. A proud partner since 1984, raising more than $72 million to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Dairy Queen’s donations will help UC Davis Children’s Hospital continue to provide the treatment and healing patients need to fulfill their potential for tomorrow.

In 2020, local DQ restaurants raised $13,713. The goal for the 2021 Miracle Treat Day event, typically held in the summer, is to raise $4.6 million for CMN Hospitals across the US and Canada.
