Consider this your 48-hour Blizzard warning.

Dairy Queen’s annual Miracle Treat Day, which goes this Thursday, raises money for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation through net proceeds from Blizzard sales.

“Over 93,000 kids in B.C. receive care from BC Children’s Hospital each year, and the community donations we receive are critical to helping provide the best health care imaginable for these children,” BC Children’s Hospital Foundation philanthropy vice-president Maria Faccio said in a press release. “We are immensely grateful for the generous support we receive from Dairy Queen and the British Columbians who make Miracle Treat Day possible.”

Miracle Treat Day is a collaboration between Dairy Queen and Children’s Miracle Network to raise funds for sick and injured kids across Canada. Last year Dairy Queen stores in B.C. raised more than $460,000.

“At Dairy Queen Canada we see our role as serving communities, whether that’s providing families a place to make memories and enjoy a treat in the summer or through our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network,” Dairy Queen Canada senior marketing director Candida Ness said.

“We are so proud of our ability to support Miracle Treat Day, and we’re grateful for the tireless work that our franchisees do year-round to make this happen.”
