Texas Dairy Queen Reaches Out To Fallen Firefighters Family [GALLERY]

Texas Dairy Queen Operators’ Council announced Saturday, July 9th that they would donate $1 for each person that attended Sunday’s game between the Rangers and the Oakland A’s. The total attendance at Sunday’s game added up to $33,834.

Shannon Stone a Brownwood, TX firefighter died July 7 after he fell from an upper railing at The Ballpark in Arlington while trying to catch a baseball for his six-year old son. In an effort to help the Stone’s family, the TDQOC felt they needed to do something to help.

“Like the rest of the country, we were extremely saddened by the accident that took Shannon Stone’s life and wanted to do what we could to help Mr. Stone’s family,” said TDQOC President Larry Newell. “Dairy Queen, like the game of baseball, is a family destination and both are part of virtually every community in Texas. When something like this happens, the family needs the help of their community more than ever. As a Brownwood firefighter, Mr. Stone spent 18 years selflessly serving his community and as part of that extended community, we want to give something back to his family.”
