It's the best day of the year so far for ice cream lovers — Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen.

Customers can get a small vanilla ice cream cone at their local DQ for free, all day on March 15, with a limit of one per person (though I won't tell if you buy yourself a Blizzard too).

The Free Cone Day event is part of a fundraiser for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. So while you're saving $1.99 on your ice cream, why not consider donating it to the fund? Last year Dairy Queen stores were able to raise $140,000 on Free Cone Day.

You've got nothing to lose. Free ice cream, philanthropy and an excuse to eat dessert on your lunch break — who could ask for more?
