Perham Dairy Queen celebrates Miracle Treat Day Aug. 10

The 13th annual Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day took place Aug. 2 nationwide, but Perham Dairy Queen will celebrate a belated Miracle Treat Day on Aug. 10. Located at 802 Third Ave. S.E., the location was unable to participate in Miracle Treat Day due to an accidental crash into the building that shut it down for days.

Miracle Treat Day benefits local sick and injured children. It is an opportunity to savor a sweet treat to support Sanford Children's Hospital in Fargo—North Dakota and northwest Minnesota's only Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

The Perham Dairy Queen proudly donates 100 percent of the proceeds from the day's Blizzard sales and Blizzard coupon sales to Children's Miracle Network benefiting Sanford Children's. The location raised almost $5,000 in 2017 during Miracle Treat Day. It has donated more than $15,000 to Sanford Children's in the last three years.

Last year's Miracle Treat Day raised over $100,000 for Sanford Children's Hospitals in Fargo, North Dakota. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $130 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.
