Miracle Treat Day is the perfect day to treat yourself to something sweet, creamy, and dreamy. Plus you're doing something wonderful for the children who are treated at Sanford Children's Hospital, the only Children's Miracle Network Hospital in the region.

Miracle Treat Day is coming up on Thursday, July 25th, so mark your calendars now and remember that calories don't count on that one day this year!

At least $1 from every delicious Dairy Queen Blizzard will go to help children and their families who are battling illness. And 100% of every dollar stays right here in Sioux Falls to help provide special services like Child Life and educational tutoring.

Your donations also support funding cutting-edge technology and assisting families with costs not covered by insurance.

Just by treating yourself on the "Sweetest Day of the Year" you're also making sure that kids being treated at Sanford Children's Hospital have plenty of toys, art supplies, and other things that can help them smile.

The other thing you should think about is stocking up on Blizzard coupons. They make great gifts for any occasion or special event, never expire and are redeemable at dozens of participating Dairy Queens in the area. (You can see a list of all the DQs where you can use the coupons here). 

No matter where you buy your Blizzard coupons, online, or at your favorite DQ, just know that you're doing something wonderful for the children being cared for at the Sanford Castle.

For more information, to buy Blizzard coupons, or to make a donation, just go to Miracle Treat Day.

The 10 Largest Occupations in South Dakota

Where do people in South Dakota work?

If you were a South Dakotan a hundred years ago, chances are you had a job related to farming or ranching. If you weren't doing the farming, you were selling things to the farmers, fixing things for the farmers, or buying things from the farmers.

In the 2020s, things are very different.

Most of us in the SD work in health care or the service industry in one way or another. In fact, there are more nurses in South Dakota than the entire population of the state capital, Pierre.

Today far more people work at a store or restaurant than have probably ever even been on a farm. Time passes and things change, always. Fifty years from now who knows what jobs South Dakotans will be doing

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, these are the top 10 largest occupations in South Dakota (as of 2022).
