Summer is in full swing, and that means everyone is suffering the Georgia heat and could benefit from something cool and refreshing.

Cool off at any of the local Dairy Queen stores by indulging in their famous Blizzard on Miracle Treat Day, Thursday, July 25, with $1 or more from every Blizzard sold being donated to Children’s Hospital of Georgia, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Participating DQ locations in the Augusta area include:
  • 2837 Central Ave.
  • 3149 Washington Road
  • 3102 Peach Orchard Road

If you are in the area of North Augusta, South Carolina, head to the DQ on 1051 Edgefield Road.

Miracle Treat Day is a CMN Hospitals fundraiser. CHOG, a not-for-profit hospital, has been a beneficiary of the CMN Hospitals program since 1986. Last year,  all of Children’s partnerships with DQ raised over $100,000 for the hospital.

The event lasts all day and group pre-orders are available. For more information, call 706-832-1804.

With 154 beds, CHOG is the second-largest children’s hospital in the state, providing the highest level of pediatric critical care and neonatal intensive care, as well as a wide range of general and complex health care for children.
