UPDATE: Blizzard sales ‘hot’ at Terre Haute Dairy Queens

TERRE HAUTE — You still have time today to enjoy a Dairy Queen Blizzard and support a good cause at the same time.

DQs are selling the popular ice cream treats today and donating a portion of the sales to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.

Lynn Sneeden, manager/owner of the DQ on east Wabash Avenue, said sales have been brisk, even during a late afternoon rain.

“People have really been wanting to help Riley Hospital today,” Sneeden said. “We have just kept going every since we opened.”

Many of the Blizzard orders have been much larger than usual, Sneeden noted. Some people are ordering eight or 10 at a time for local businesses and organizations, she said.

Manager Pam Lebrun of the Dairy Queen on Davis Drive told the Tribune-Star talked to the Tribune-Star earlier in the day.

“A lot of them are coming in to make sure we are participating in it,” Lebrun said of customers. “People are aware of it.”

Oreo Blizzards are the favorite of the morning, she said, but she hadn’t had time to count up the number of Blizzards sold as of noon. She was anticipating Blizzard sales to even more brisk this afternoon.

Approximately 150 Indiana Dairy Queen locations are participating in the eighth-annual Dairy Queen Miracle Treat Day, including the Terre Haute DQ on Fort Harrison Road. That restaurant is traditionally one of the top donors on Miracle Treat Day.

Proceeds throughout the United States and Canada will support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a charity that raises funds for more than 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada. Riley Hospital for Children is Indiana’s only affiliated Children’s Miracle Network hospital.
