Siouxland DQ and Palmer’s Candy partner together to make a sweet treat to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -
Siouxland Dairy Queen and Palmer’s Candy are teaming up for The Longest Day® event benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association®.
On Wednesday, June 21, all Sioux City, South Sioux City, and Sergeant Bluff Dairy Queen restaurants will be mixing up an exclusive, community inspired Bing™ Blizzard.
For every small Bing™ Blizzard sold from June 21 to the 30, one dollar will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Iowa Chapter.
“Dairy Queen is excited to bring Sioux City it’s very own Blizzard featuring the Palmer Candy’s Bing™ bar while helping the Alzheimer’s Association,” said DQ Regional Manager, Steve Hill. “We are fortunate to have Palmer’s Candy Co. in Sioux City and willing to partner with us for this great cause. When our fans try the Bing™ bar Blizzard, they will want to come back for more. It’s that good.”
Organizers said the Longest Day is a team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The event is held annually on the summer solstice, the duration of this sunrise-to-sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with the disease and their caregivers.
“We are thrilled to be partnering up with our local Dairy Queen’s to help raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. Raising funds to further our support, care and research is a must and we are so grateful for Dairy Queen and Palmer’s Candy efforts in helping us do so,” stated Jeanne Steinkamp, Program Specialist with Alzheimer’s Association. “Hopefully the Twin Bing Blizzard can be a tradition that folks look forward to every June during Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month!”
