Dairy Queen’s Free Cone Day on March 20 benefits Beaumont Children’s Hospital

3/13/2014

You can make a lick of difference by ordering a Dairy Queen ice cream cone on March 20 to benefit Beaumont Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network.

For every mouth-watering cone that Dairy Queen serves for Free Cone Day, guests are invited to make a donation, with all money raised staying in the local community. The fundraiser at Dairy Queen’s Southeast Michigan restaurants helps Beaumont’s programs and services for children.

"We are most grateful to the Dairy Queen organization for the generous support extended to Beaumont Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network,” says Dr. Brian Berman, pediatrician-in-chief of Beaumont Children’s Hospital. “Support of this sort helps us immeasurably in our mission to provide advanced care to the ones that matter most - the children and families of our community."

Beaumont Children’s Hospital is one of 170 pediatric medical centers across North America affiliated with the nonprofit Children’s Miracle Network.

Since 1984, Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants across the United States have raised more than $100 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
