It sure doesn't look or feel like it, but Tuesday is the first day of spring and Dairy Queen is doing its best to get you in the mood.  For the fourth straight year participating Dairy Queen stores across the country will be offering free ice cream cones.

Stores will be serving free small vanilla cones while supplies last, one per customer.  At the same time they'll be accepting donations to the Children's Miracle Network.  The non-profit organization raises money for children's hospitals, medical research and raises awareness of health issues affecting children.

$300,000 was raised last year.  Oishei Children's Hospital of Buffalo is this area's Children's Miracle Network hospital.  Get a free ice cream cone and make a donation to a very worthwhile cause on Tuesday, March 20th, the first day of spring.
