Dairy Queens across the province will donate proceeds from every Blizzard sold to B.C. Children’s Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network.

Nanaimo Dairy Queens are at 280 Nicol St., 3190 North Island Hwy. and 6888 Island Hwy.

Last year’s event raised close to $350,000.

The money supports life-saving research, education programs and the purchase of medical equipment at B.C. Children’s Hospital.
