Miracle Treat Day Helps Shodair Children's Hospital

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

While many Montanans helped themselves to Dairy Queen blizzards today, they were also helping raise money for Shodair Children's Hospital in Helena.

On a hot day, especially like today, Dairy Queen makes i too easy for Montanans to help make a miracle.

For every dollar spent on a blizzard today, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Shodair Children's Hospital in Helena.

"It feels really good that I can help a local organization that helps children by eating a blizzard," DQ customer Abby Zent. "It's really easy--anyone can come in and get a blizzard. A lot of businesses donate just a small percentage. So it's great that all of the proceeds from the blizzard sales to the Shodair Children's Hospital."

Manager of the Prospect Avenue Dairy Queen, Chiko Olson said it's a big event for Dairy Queen because the whole community comes to participate.

"We've taken pre-orders this week," Olson said. "We started taking pre-orders because I learned the hard way that Helena Customers are great customers and that way we can make sure that everyone gets fed."

Some customers dove right in to making a difference by purchasing boxes full of blizzards for their co-workers.

Shodair Children's Hospital employee Ellen Livers, "So this is the genetic department, at Shodair I have 25 blizzards here that we're taking back to our co-workers."

For the crew at Dairy Queen, today meant more than just serving blizzards to their happy customers.

"I'm really proud of our crew because a lot of them are younger employees, and it teaches all of us to think outside of just ourselves and the needs," Olson.

The money collected today will be officially delivered to Shodair Children's Hospital on Labor Day weekend. Needless to say miracle treat day is a sweet and easy way to make smiles for Montana children.
