Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day @ Participating Dairy Queen's throughout Connecticut

Bring healing and happiness to local kids.

Guests visiting local DQ locations supporting Connecticut Children’s can purchase a paper Miracle Balloon to publicly pledge support and receive $2 or $5 in discount coupons good for food or treat on their next visit.



Celebrating more than 30 years and $125 million raised for local kids!

Dairy Queen loves kids. Whether its kids’ sports teams celebrating at our restaurants after games, children enjoying dinner with their parents or teenagers visiting for cool treats at the end of a date, DQ and kids go hand in hand. And if these cherished youngsters ever become sick or injured, we want to help assure they have the best medical care available. That’s why the DQ system has been a proud national partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) since 1984.

The founders of the Dairy Queen® system were men and women who introduced a new kind of dessert treat and, in the process, developed the foundation of the franchising industry. The history of the DQ® system is a story of a unique product that created an industry. Visit DQ online.

Facing an extraordinary medical challenge.

For our daughter Em, feeding issues and limited language were a daily struggle. We had so many questions about her future, with no real answers. But when we met speech language pathologist, Kelly Mabry, PhD, at Connecticut Children’s, everything changed for our family.
