Forecasting Thursday’s Blizzard

We Mainers love our Blizzards! Instead of rock salt, shovels, winter boots, scarfs, and gloves, tomorrow’s forecast calls for vanilla ice cream, our favorite candies, and lots of miracles. It’s Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day!

This is the 38th year that our friends from Dairy Queen are partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada, including EMMC. During this time, Dairy Queen locations have raised more than $160 million for local children’s hospitals, and more than $2 million of these funds have come from Miracle Treat Day.

What is Miracle Treat Day?

Miracle Treat Day is a simple concept. Customers stop into their local Dairy Queen – in our area stop in and say hi to the crews in Bangor, Belfast, Brewer, Ellsworth, and Old Town – and buy their favorite Blizzard – my favorite is the new Oreo Dirt Pie Blizzard treat. It’s that simple! Dairy Queen will do the rest. Participating restaurants will donate $1 or more from the sale of each Blizzard treat tomorrow, Thursday, July 28.

The fun starts at 11 am tomorrow!. And, if you’re in the Ellsworth area, stop by and say hi to Kid from Z107.3. He’ll be broadcasting live from 11 am to 2 pm.
