Sweet treats benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

Participating Dairy Queen locations will donate $1 dollar or more from every Blizzard ice cream treat to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Thursday.

The charity raises funds to help save and improve the lives of children treated at 170 children's hospitals across North America.

The 'Miracle Treat Day' began seven years ago as a joint effort between Dairy Queen stores in the U.S. and Canada. Last year's event raised more than $5 million.
