Eat Dessert First on July 27 to Benefit Children’s Hospital Colorado

On Thursday, July 27 the Boulder DQ Grill & Chill® location is encouraging the local community to Eat Dessert First for one day only to benefit Children’s Hospital Colorado.

For every Blizzard® Treat sold during the 12th Annual DQ® Miracle Treat Day on Thursday, July 27 at the DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant at 3265 N. 28th Street in Boulder, $1 will be donated to Children’s Hospital Colorado. Children’s Miracle Hospitals® (CMNH) raises funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada including Children’s Hospital Colorado.

“We are breaking the rules and eating dessert first for a great cause,” said the crew at Boulder DQ. “We do this to help save and improve the lives of children treated at Children’s Hospital Colorado. These families need our support and together we can make a difference.”

Last year, Dairy Queen operators across the U.S. and Canada combined to raise more than $4 million on Miracle Treat Day for their local CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $125 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.

The featured Miracle Treat Day Blizzard Treat of the Day is Oreo®, the most popular Blizzard Treat to date. The Blizzard Treats of the Month for July in the U.S. are Frosted Fudge Brownie and Salted Caramel Blondie. All other Blizzard flavors are also available that day.
