On Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day, DQ and the Oregon Trail Disc Golf Club partnered to raise funds for the Children’s Miracle Network. On Thursday, July 28th, experienced and new players alike gathered at the Oregon Trail Park Disc Golf course to play a round to raise donations for Dairy Queen’s annual fundraiser.
