Dairy Queen Free Cone Day March 20 to benefit Akron Children's

03-17-2017 (Mahoning Valley, Ohio )

Dairy Queen locations throughout the Mahoning Valley will offer guests a free small cone on the first day of spring, March 20, in an effort to raise awareness and funds for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Locally, Free Cone Day promotions will take place at participating Dairy Queens in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana and Mercer counties, with all proceeds from these local events benefiting Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

“When guests order their free cone, they’ll be invited by DQ staff to make a donation to Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley,” said JoAnn Stock, senior director of development, Akron Children’s Hospital. “This promotion has been very good for us in past years, and we hope to see the community’s generosity and participating again this time.”

In 2016, local DQ locations raised more than $39,000 through their year-round fundraising for Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
