On March 15th, participating Dairy Queens will be giving away one free small vanilla cone per customer. Usually done on the first day of Spring, Dairy Queen is doing the promotion earlier this year to celebrate 75 years of Free Cone Day. As part of the promotion, Dairy Queen accepts donations for the Children’s Miracle Network.
From the Patch:
Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation, told Yahoo Finance that DQ raised $140,000 in one day last year, averaging about 1,330 cones per store. He said he hopes to surpass those numbers this year.
