From Monday, October 5th until Sunday, October 11th, Dairy Queen fans in Petawawa are invited to support sick kids by ordering from their local participating Dairy Queen stores. Promotions will raise much needed funds for The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario to support the children and families in need.

As part of the fundraising initiative, $2 or more will be donated from every Blizzard sold. Funds will be raised through in-store, pick-up and drive thru orders.

On average, 35,000 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Member hospital each week. That’s 5,000 per day or 62 per minute. To support the children and their families receiving treatment at local children’s hospitals, Dairy Queen employees, franchisees, volunteers and stakeholders come together throughout the year to help raise funds. Since the partnership began in 1984, DQ® has become a top contributor to Children’s Miracle Network, with over $135 million raised to-date in support of sick and injured children across North America.
