Special guests expected for Miracle Treat Day at Langley Dairy Queen

Langley’s newest Dairy Queen in Willoughby Town Centre is going all out for this year’s Miracle Treat Day next week (Thursday, Aug. 11).

Members of the Vancouver Giants, Vancouver Stealth, Township mayor Jack Froese, Miss BC title holders and Township firefighters are just some of the volunteers mixing up Blizzards. Fun things are happening all day outside the Dairy Queen, located at 20678 Willoughby Town Centre Drive.

“We’re going a little bigger for our Miracle Treat Day this year since we’re a newer location,” said Dairy Queen owner Steve Wheelhouse.

“We will be open 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. 100 per cent of proceeds from all blizzard sales will be going directly to BC Children’s Hospital.

Sugar Flour Bakers will have some cookies and cupcakes with proceeds going to Children’s, as well as Thrive Bootcamp will be there.

Kids can tour a fire truck from 1 to 2 p.m.

Also, with every blizzard bought, the customer will receive an entry to win one of the door prize baskets which includes items and services donated from various Langley business owners.

There are several other Dairy Queens participating: in Langley City at 20300 Fraser Highway, at #1 6131 200 Street, #2 20177 88 Avenue and at 19705 Fraser Highway.
