Dining With Denise Neil

Ice cream for a cause

I can think of about, oh, six million reasons why I’d like to eat a Dairy Queen Blizzard, those amazing blended concoctions of soft serve, candy bars and fruit chunks.

Today, though, I have an excuse to give in. Dairy Queen stores in Wichita are participating in an annual tradition — Miracle Treat Day for Children’s Miracle Network.

Today only, Dairy Queen will give $1 from every Blizzard sold to the Children’s Miracle Network, which hels sick and injured children. Since 1984, DQ has raised more than $81 million for the cause.

Participating stores are at 849 S. Poplar, 5335 E. Central, 3248 N. Rock Road, and 1520 S. Webb.
