Get your free ice cream from Dairy Queen

In an effort to liven up a Monday, Dairy Queen is giving away a small soft-serve vanilla cone today during regular business hours at participating locations.

The Mid-West based company is celebrating its 75th anniversary in style by treating its customers and giving back to the community.

Like most other “free days,” the chain is holding the day in order to collect donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations will help the Los Angeles location pay for research, equipment and uncompensated care.

Dairy Queen has raised more than $100 million for the nonprofit network in the past 30 years.

These cold treats will be welcome, as it’ll be hot this week so be sure to stop by with a friend for your free scoop.
