BRISTOL, Va. -

Some area Dairy Queen restaurants were offering people a sweet treat on Saturday while raising money for a good cause.

Saturday was "Free Blizzard Day".  Patrons could get a free small blizzard if they made a donation to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

This was the third year of the fundraiser.

We're told this year's fundraiser was put on to a help a teenager named Cade  from Meadowview, Virginia.  He is raising money for St. Jude's.

He was a patient and is raising money as a way to give back to the hospital.

Dairy Queen raised $3,850.
