LETHBRIDGE HERALD – COALDALE
Dairy Queen fans in Coaldale can support a good cause while enjoying a tasty treat next week.
From Monday until Sunday, Oct. 11, patrons of the Coaldale Dairy Queen are invited to support sick kids by ordering from their local participating Dairy Queen stores. Promotions will raise much-needed funds for Alberta Children’s Hospital to support the children and families in need.
As part of the fundraising initiative, $5 will be donated for every DQ Cake or Blizzard Cake eight inches or larger sold. Funds will be raised through in-store, pickup and drive-thru orders.
On average, 35,000 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network hospital each week. That’s 5,000 per day or 62 per minute. To support the children and their families receiving treatment at Alberta Children’s Hospital, Dairy Queen employees, franchisees, volunteers and stakeholders come together throughout the year to help raise funds. Since the partnership began in 1984, DQ has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with over $135 million raised to date in support of sick and injured children across North America.
