Dairy Queen Fundraiser for CMN 

Business was booming at local Dairy Queens today, for a good reason. With every Blizzard treat they sell Thursday they will donate a dollar to the Children’s Miracle Network.The folks at the Dairy Queen on Broadway in Bangor say they sold a hundred Blizzards before noontime. Local businesses have been faxing in orders for 25 at a time, and donating extra money when they pick them up. Folks at DQ say they’re pleased to support CMN since the money they raise will help lots of children.”My baby probably wouldn’t be here with us today if it wasn’t for them. She spent a week in the NICU when she was born, so it’s a really special day for me,” says Libby Bambrick, who works at Dairy Queen.Miracle Treat Day raises funds at Dairy Queens across the country.Last year’s event raised 4.5 million dollars for 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. They say all the money raised stays in local communities.
