Think spring! While we dig out from yesterday’s winter storm and bundle up from the frigid temps, we can look forward to a FREE Dairy Queen cone on Monday, Mar. 20, the first day of Spring. Its Free Cone Day at all DQ and DQ Grill & Chill locations in the US, including NYC locations. At the same time, participating locations also will collect donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
No purchase is required to get a FREE small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top (limit one per customer while supplies last).
Over the last 32 years, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $120 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities. Last year, the Dairy Queen system raised more than $200,000 in one day for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Let’s call it a two-fer – you get a sweet treat, and you can support a good cause at the same time.
