Yes, we're sick of winter too. And while getting ice cream may be low on your list of priorities right now, don't miss out on 'Free Cone Day'!

Everyone who stops by participating Dairy Queen locations will get a free soft serve cone this Monday, March 16. This is the 75th anniversary of the very first Free Cone Day.

Dairy Queen will also be putting the additional traffic through their locations to good use. DQ is requesting donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals which helps improve the quality of life at 170 children's hospitals across North America. So far more than $100 million has been raised.

Here's funny bit from comedian John Pinette regarding his DQ addition.
