On November 14th Dairy Queen Brant hosted the annual Brant United Way DQ Cupcake Day at both our King George Road and Colborne Street West locations! We also had a 3rd week-long outlet set up at Brantford’s Grand Wellness Centre on Grand River Avenue.
This was our fourth year hosting this event and with the evolution of any event comes growth and more partners. For the third year, we were fortunate enough to have the Grand Wellness Centre as a partner and a 2nd outlet to encourage the community of our great city to support the United Way.
How could anyone resist the taste of a Blizzard Cupcake!?
This year our staff made 118 packages of blizzard cupcakes. With 6 cupcakes in each package, that’s 708 Cupcakes purchased to help the United Way! DQ Brant donated $7 from each package sold for a total $826.00.
The staff at The Grand Wellness Centre did an amazing job getting their customers involved and sold 54 packages at their location alone. On top of their excellent sales, The Grand Wellness Centre also donated $400.00.
This year, we were excited to be able to raise a total of $1,226 for the United Way! Thank you everyone for your support!
