Triangle Dairy Queen Owner To Distribute Treats To Children At Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center
Andrew Valkanoff, owner and operator of Triangle Dairy Queen, will visit with children of Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center and distribute treats from his mobile ice cream cart to celebrate Miracle Treat Day 2014, in which the proceeds from every Blizzard sold at the three Dairy Queen locations in the Triangle will go directly to benefiting the hospital.
Miracle Treat Day is a national fundraiser through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that aims to bring hope and healing to sick and injured children in the Triangle area and worldwide. This will be the first time Triangle Dairy Queen has delivered treats to the hospital.
Valkanoff is heavily involved with Duke Children's, a Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Over the past eight years, Triangle Dairy Queen's participation has raised more than $75,000 for Duke Children's, including $10,000 last year. This year they hope to raise $14,000 on Miracle Treat Day.
To further support Duke Children's, Triangle Dairy Queen locations will sell Miracle Balloons for $1 now through Miracle Treat Day. With each balloon purchased, customers will earn $2 in Dairy Queen coupons. Triangle Dairy Queen has set a goal to sell 10,000 balloons across the three area restaurants – at New Bern Avenue in Raleigh, Morrisville Carpenter Road in Morrisville and Walnut Street in Cary – leading up to the Miracle Treat Day celebration. Proceeds from these three Dairy Queens will benefit Duke Children's through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals .
