Did you hear about the "blizzards" taking over the Sioux Empire on Thursday, July 28th? Specifically, one South Dakota town just couldn't control the power of the blizzards. Luckily, these wild blizzards benefited local kiddos.

The Annual Miracle Treat Day is all about helping local kids fight cancer as well as providing necessary assistance for their families.  These sweet blizzards alone help the kids and families of the Sanford Children's Miracle Network with needs such as specialized equipment, Child Life and Spiritual Care programs, and lodging expenses.

Historically, the Dairy Queen establishment in Madison has always sold the most blizzards in South Dakota on Miracle Treat Day. This year is no exception. The Madison Dairy Queen sold over 30,000 blizzards on Miracle Treat Day!

The Madison Dairy Queen shared the exciting news on its Facebook page with its ice cream lovers! The grand total for the day was 32,490 blizzards! Wow! Madison residents sure do have a major sweet tooth! The Facebook post explains, "With this year's total, the Madison Dairy Queen location has sold over 500,000 blizzards since Miracle Treat Day began in 2006."
