Dairy Queen has fundraiser for
tornado victims
PRINCETON — Dairy Queen on North Main Street in Princeton will sell leftover ice cream at special prices with all proceeds going to benefit Washington, Ill., tornado victims noon-5 p.m. Saturday.

Stephanie Townsend, daughter of Princeton Dairy Queen owners Mark and Karen Townsend, said there will be cones, dishes, frozen quarts and boxed items including mint Dilly Bars, vanilla orange bars, and fudge bars. At the end of the season, ice cream business owners sometimes throw out leftovers, but the Townsends thought this was a better idea.

She has organized fundraisers similar to this in the past, and hopes this one will be just as successful.
