Tri-county Citizens Flock to DQ for Deavers' Night | Community Spirit
People from Dodge, Bleckley and Pulaski counties and areas other than that (but not reported) flocked to Cochran's Dairy Queen as part of Deavers' Night.
15% of all proceeds of sales from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. were going to be donated to the family of Tracey and Shannon Deavers who are in the process of adopting two special needs' children(orphans) from China. The family was on hand and selling special t-shirts to help with their adoption fund.
Ali Momin, owner/operator of the Dairy Queen, was shocked when after 6:30, the lines started forming out the door and the drive-thru line was out into the road. "This is crazy."
Tracey Deavers, dad, said that the lines had been that way for over an hour when he posted a photo from outside Dairy Queen. "Thank you."
One citizen said, "I don't think this has ever happened EVER in Dairy Queen, much less in Cochran."
