Mark August 2 on your calendar and plan to celebrate it with a Dairy Queen Blizzard treat.
Crossing that last item off your school supply list, making it to work on time, a long lunch break, the fact that it’s a Thursday … whatever makes you smile is worthy of ice cream that day.
That’s because DQ is donating $1 (some stores are chipping in even more) for every Blizzard sale in our city on August 2 to Via Christi Hospitals in Wichita, part of the Children’s Miracle Network.
Be prepared to stand in a bit of a line no matter when you drop in: Since DQ began this fundraising push in 1984, the ice cream chain has raised more than $125 million for children’s hospitals.
Every flavor is on the table: Jurassic Chomp, Summer Berry Cheesecake, Twix, Cotton Candy, S’mores. Or just order the “plain” M&M or Oreos versions. You can’t go wrong with a Blizzard, and all 11 DQ locations in the Wichita area are participating.
