Dairy Queen's 'Blizzard' Thursday raises money for kids' hospitals

Dairy Queen's Donna Albanese demonstrates how to serve
the chain's trademark treat.

Plainfield's Dairy Queen once again celebrates its annual 'Miracle Treat Day' Thursday, with a portion of the sale of every Blizzard® treat going to support rehab services for youngsters at Children's Specialized Hospital locations in New Jersey.

Owner and community activist Donna Albanese says this year, the Plainfield Dairy Queen will make a special splash by hand-delivering the trademark
Blizzard treats to the morning drive-time hosts and staff at New York's popular Z100 radio station.

You are invited to drop in during at any time Thursday (DQ is open until 10:00 PM) and join the effort by treating yourself and anyone else you can think of to a Blizzard. Those calories will all be for a good cause!

Donna tells me that the Dairy Queen organization has raised more than $97 million for Children's Miracle Network hospitals since 1984. In New Jersey, about $20,000 is raised for each 'Miracle Treat Day'.

The Plainfield Dairy Queen is at 1357 South Avenue, between Leland Avenue and Terrill Road and is open daily until 10:00 PM.
