SIOUX FALLS, S.D., July 13, 2020 — South Dakota Sweet Miracles is happening now at Dairy Queen locations across South Dakota. For every Blizzard treat and Blizzard coupon sold, $1 will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network.

South Dakota Sweet Miracles is the solution on how to handle Miracle Treat Day while our communities are still surrounded in uncertainly from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Miracle Treat Day is one of the most important events of the year for supporting our local miracle children and their families,” said Bethany Olson, a senior development officer with Sanford Health’s Children’s Miracle Network. “This year, we need the community to safely celebrate South Dakota Sweet Miracles through online Blizzard sales. Please, preorder yours today.”

Blizzards can be ordered at through July 26.
