Over $10,000 worth of blizzards were bought from Steinbach Dairy Queen yesterday in support of Miracle Treat Day.
Steinbach Dairy Queen Owner Jo Unger informs that the event donated all profits from every blizzard sold across Manitoba to the Winnipeg Children’s Hospital. “Although we might think, 'that’s in Winnipeg and we are in Steinbach', there are an awful lot of children [from Steibbach] who need to go to that facility every year, so we are proud to raise funds for that cause,” observes Unger
“We always look forward to breaking last year’s record and this year we did it!” Unger indicates the funds raised yesterday’s surpassed last year’s total by a few hundred dollars.
Unger notes all kinds of volunteers came to help out at the event, among them, a girl named Abigail Stewart who is the 11-year old spokesperson for the Children’s Hospital and a conqueror of White Blood-Cell Disease.
“I am the champion child of the Children’s Hospital” proclaims Abigail, “So I tell my story to a bunch of places.”
Unger applauds Abigail and all other volunteers who came out to serve Blizzards. She also commends the customers who bought Blizzards in support of Miracle Treat day, adding it looks like a good time was had by all.
