Ice cream event at Dairy Queen a cool way to help Shodair

Dairy Queen’s annual Miracle Treat Day is Thursday, and a portion of the sale of every Blizzard sold at participating Dairy Queens in Montana will be donated to help children served at Shodair Children’s Hospital.

Eric Bass, owner of both Dairy Queens in Helena, said he is excited to participate in this fundraising effort for the first time. The Helena native recently purchased the restaurants with his father-in-law John McLaughlin.

“What better cause in today’s challenging world than to help children in need of emotional support from economically challenged families,” he said in a news release.

The Dairy Queens in Helena are at 2850 N. Montana Ave. and 1700 Prospect Ave.

CEO Craig Aasved said Shodair is fortunate to have partners like Dairy Queen because they play a critical role in helping the hospital meet its mission: To heal, help and inspire hope.
