Miracle Treat Day benefits UC Davis Children's Hospital on July 27

(SACRAMENTO, Calif.)

On Thursday, July 27, in celebration of Miracle Treat Day, participating Dairy Queen® locations in Sacramento will come together to raise funds for UC Davis Children’s Hospital

During Miracle Treat Day, $1 or more from every Blizzard® Treat sold at participating locations will be donated to Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals, which raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.

Donations collected at Sacramento area locations on Miracle Treat Day will directly help UC Davis Children’s Hospital fund leading-edge research, equipment, programs and patient care. Funds raised will help support a child like Cadence Stamper who has a remarkable medical story to tell, thanks to the treatment she received at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

Last year’s Miracle Treat Day at DQ stores raised more than $19,400 for UC Davis Children’s Hospital. The following are participating DQ locations that give back to UC Davis Children’s Hospital.
