"I thoroughly believe our Queens should be involved in the community,” said Lynn Manley, Sumner Egg Festival Beauty Pageant Chairman. “It's not about what the community can do for us, but what about what we can do for our community."

"Being a Queen I can help out my community, and I'm proud of that,” said 10-year-old Hartley Croy, Sumner Egg Festival Queen.

Dairy Queen is donating at least one dollar for every blizzard sold today at participating locations nationwide.
