Cometh the hour, cometh Dairy Queen to usher in the spring with free ice cream cones! March 20th is a special day this year as you can head to your nearest DQ outlet and get yourself free ice cream (and honestly what could be better than that).
the Fourth Annual Free Cone Day will help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals via donations from customers. The free cone giveaway will take place at participating non-mall locations of both Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill restaurants.
“We’re excited for our fourth annual Free Cone Day,” Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation, said in a statement. “This day has become a spring tradition and a sign that warmer weather is upon us.”
Last year’s Free Cone Day helped raise almost $300,000 for local hospitals through donations participating restaurants collected from customers. Free ice cream, and a chance to do some good, it doesn’t get better than that!
