Whether you need to beat the heat with some ice cream or are in the giving mood, today you can do both at Dairy Queen as they celebrate Miracle Treat Day.
"It's a great day," shared Louise Vandenhurk, co-owner at Estevan's Dairy Queen. "We raise money for the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital in Saskatoon. Saskatchewan doesn't have a children's hospital and they have been building this hospital and it's designated to open in 2019. All proceeds today from every blizzard doesn't matter what size, what flavour, goes to the children's hospital."
She shared that her niece when she was 18 months old, was diagnosed with cancer and needed a kidney removed. She spent time at the children's hospital in Calgary. Vandenhurk added that the hospital in Calgary was amazing but it means that the children who are sick in Saskatchewan, need to travel to Alberta in order to receive care.
"We need a children's hospital. Parents and children need to be in their province and need to be together."
Last year Payton Serenick from Estevan was in attendance at DQ's Miracle Treat Day handing out blizzards. However, she is currently in Calgary and wasn't able to make the trip.
