OMAHA, Neb. (AP)  Dairy Queen plans to give away small ice cream cones later this month to celebrate the restaurant chain’s 75th anniversary. The restaurant chain picked March 16 to celebrate with soft serve ice cream because that will be the 75th day of the year.

Dairy Queen Executive Vice President Barry Westrum says the ice cream give away is just the first thing the restaurant has planned to celebrate its anniversary this year. While giving away ice cream cones, Dairy Queen will be accepting donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

The Dairy Queen chain is based in Minneapolis, and it includes more than 6,400 restaurants in 27 countries. It is owned by Warren Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska, based Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
