Posted at 12:38 PM, Mar 19, 2017

Dairy Queen announced that it will giveaway free vanilla ice cream cones at all of its non-mall locations in the United States on Monday, to celebrate the start of spring, and to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

According to Dairy Queen, the free soft serve cones will be available while supplies last. The company said cones are limited to one per customer. 


While Dairy Queen is not charging for the cones, it is soliciting donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Dairy Queen said it raised $200,000 for the charity on the same day last year. Dairy Queen said that donations will stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. 

“We’re excited and ready to go for our Third Annual Free Cone Day,” said Barry Westrum, Dairy Queen executive vice president. “Free cones have become a fan tradition — they love it. The icing on the cake is supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”

Dairy Queen has 6,700 locations worldwide.
