Miracle Treat Day raises money for Akron Children’s Hospital

Tasty fundraiser to be held on Aug. 14

AKRON, Ohio (Aug. 11, 2014) – On Thursday Aug. 14, Dairy Queen will partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN) for the 30th year to help raise money for children in need, including Akron Children’s Hospital.

For every Blizzard Treat purchased at a participating Dairy Queen store in the Akron or the Mahoning Valley area, $1 or more will be donated to Akron Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Throughout the course of the 30-year partnership between Dairy Queen and CMN, more than $100 million has been raised for children’s hospitals across North America. The majority of the funds raised each year come from this one-day event.

In 2013, Miracle Treat Day generated $40,000 for Akron Children’s Hospital at locations in Akron and the Mahoning Valley.
