The calories don't count today, as it is Miracle Treat Day at Dairy Queen locations across North America
It is Miracle Treat Day across North America, a day where all the proceeds from the sale of Dairy Queen Blizzards go to local Children's Hospitals, and in Vegreville, money raised will go to the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton.
Owner of the Vegreville Dairy Queen, Joanne Veldkamp, says she knows several local families who have benefited from the Children's Miracle Network, which supports the Stollery.
Veldkamp adds that they will also have paper balloons for sale to add to their donation totals. Dairy Queen is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today.
