This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

Last year the local Dairy Queen sold over 700 Blizzards, which means over $2,000 in proceeds towards the Children’s Stollery Foundation. That’s in addition to just over $2,000 raised by selling Miracle Day balloons in the restaurant.

Patterson hopes that extra advertising her location’s taken on itself will help them sell 1,000 Blizzards this year.

“Last year we found that there wasn’t a whole lot of national advertising; I think we saw the commercial twice,” she says. “So now we’re trying to get it out there more.”

The local store has participated in Miracle Treat Day for the past ten years. As so many of her customers are children, Patterson says she’s happy to take part in the annual campaign.

“We get so many kids that come in here and we know so many kids within our own community that end up at that hospital in Vancouver, that to be able to do this and help them out is pretty special I think.”

Fort St. John’s Dairy Queen will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow.
