It's Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen, where buying your favorite flavor of Blizzard will benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

Their slogan is 'Eat Dessert First,' which I love. My great-grandfather always advised doing that, because you might not have room for dessert at the end of the meal. Makes sense to me! And who can resist a delicious Blizzard? My favorite flavor is Cappuccino Heath Bar, but they have a huge variety, from the simple to more complex combinations. I know you'll find one you love!

Miracle Treat Day is celebrated across the country. Locally, Dairy Queens in Belfast, Brewer, Bangor, and Old Town are participating, so stop by one of these locations today and indulge in your own Miracle Treat. One dollar from every Blizzard sold will go to help the good work of the EMHS Foundation's Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

CMN helps sick kids by working with local hospitals and letting them determine how best the donations can be used. Acadia Hospital recently needed a new playground for their young patients, to give them an escape from the realities of illness, hospitals, and doctors. And for Eastern Maine Medical Center, one of the latest projects included the 'Premature Anne Manikin,' which trains doctors and nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit the best ways to care for pre-term infants who need to be resuscitated.

Stop by one of these participating Dairy Queen's today for Miracle Treat Day, enjoy a Blizzard, and help sick kids in our communities.
