This year marks the 75th anniversary that Dairy Queen has supported Children's Miracle Network. As a 'thank you', Dairy Queen is offering a free small, vanilla soft serve cone when you make a donation to Children's Miracle Network on Monday, March 16, 2015.

Area stores will be participating including Yakima, Wapato, Tri-Cities and others in our area.

Your donation to Children's Miracle Network helps support Children's Village which helps children with special needs. All five members of my family (my wife and I with our three children) have all been helped by Children's Village in various ways.

It also supports the pediatrics at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital as well as their Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit.

On March 16, make it a point to swing by and drop off a couple of bucks for the good of the cause.
