MINNEAPOLIS--()--B-roll VO: Drones have delivered products and pizzas. Now drones are delivering cones – for a good cause. To kick off Free Cone Day on March 20th, which is also the first day of Spring, DQ® enlisted the help of a drone to deliver cones to a few lucky fans http://bit.ly/dqfcd. It was the first time the Berkshire Hathaway company has delivered cones by drone. For the rest of us, we can get our free cone at DQ all day on Monday, March 20th. Participating locations also will be collecting donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which raises funds to help save and improve the lives of kids treated at 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
