NEW BRUNSWICK - Children in a New Jersey hospital got a special visit from a celebrity bearing an icy treat today.

Miss America Nina Davuluri was at PSE&G Children's Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick visiting patients and handing out Dairy Queen Blizzards.

At least $1 from each blizzard sold at many Dairy Queens in northern and central New Jersey on Thursday are being donated to Children's Miracle Network, which supports the New Brunswick hospital.

"Oftentimes when I walk into a room, the children don't necessarily know who I am or what I am," Davuluri says. "But all they see is that a princess has walked into the room for a day. So to take their mind off their treatments that they're going through even for just a few minutes is one of the best parts of my job."

Davuluri is making her final few appearances with the national title. A new Miss America will be crowned next month.
