Dairy Queen stores across Central Florida are handing out free small vanilla ice cream cones Monday.

The promotion marks the 75th anniversary, or "fanniversary" as DQ likes to call it, of the restaurant's founding. In celebration, patrons can get their hands on a free 5-ounce cone.

As part of the promotion, Dairy Queen will also be collecting donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals at participating locations.

"Our fans are passionate about our brand and Free Cone Day is our way of saying thank you to them," said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation. "At the same time it gives us an opportunity to pay homage to our momentous 'Fanniversary' and benefits our national cause partner, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals."
