Like in previous years, the celebration is aimed at raising cash for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals via donations. The free ice cream promotion lasts all day, is limited to one cone per customer, but excludes Dairy Queen outposts located within malls, so you might want to give your local DQ a quick call before arriving to demand your free soft serve. 

But free ice cream!
