Update: Great day in Castlegar for a Miracle Treat

Widespread Dairy Queen fundraiser goes off on a perfectly scorching day

Things didn’t pick up until after the lunch hour, but that’s to be expected according to management of the Castlegar Dairy Queen.

On summer days it’s the afternoon when things get busy, and at times on Thursday, August 8 there were line-ups reaching from the counter to the door.

It was a great show of community support for Dairy Queen’s ‘Miracle Treat Day” during which a portion of proceeds from all Blizzard treats sold goes to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

All told, Blizzard lovers, according to franchisee Tim Kenna on Aug. 9,  helped the Castlegar Dairy Queen contribute $2,091 toward the Miracle Network Hospitals cause.
