The Flora Dairy Queen raised $4316 during the 13th Annual DQ Miracle Treat Day to support the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  On Miracle Treat Day the restaurant donated $1 from every Blizzard Treat sold to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Once again, the Flora Dairy Queen extended the fund raiser to the local level in support of a local child and donated $2 for every small, medium and large blizzard and $1 for every mini blizzard sold that day. This year they are donating $7667 to the family of 2 month old Chloe Anderson who is the daughter of Heather Bell and Bradley Anderson of Flora.  Chloe was born with several serious birth defects that will require multiple surgeries in the future.  

“We were able to raise this amount, because of our customers’ tremendous generosity,” says Melissa Billingsley, owner of the Flora Dairy Queen.  "The weather was beautiful and once again we were able to sell more Blizzards than last year!  It's always our busiest day of the year.  Despite the long lines, people were very kind and understanding.  All of our employees worked that day and we are so proud of all of them and their hard work. Despite frozen fingers and tired feet, they were excited to be part of Miracle Treat Day and did a great job. We are blessed to have such a great team.”

“The people of Clay County made an incredible effort to come out and show their support.  We are so proud to be part of this community.  Thank you to all of our fans who participated in this year’s Miracle Treat Day.  Together we truly make miracles happen.”

“Every year we have even more local businesses buy coupons and Blizzards for their employees and we really appreciate their very generous support. We are also grateful to many thoughtful people who donated additional money for Chloe and her family.”
