IHOP's National Pancake Day Raises More Than $52,000 for Maria Fareri Children's Hospital

IHOP Restaurants across the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County helped raise more than $52,000 for Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital during National Pancake Day, February 27th! For the 13th consecutive year, IHOP Restaurants nationwide offered one free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes in exchange for donations to all guests on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for charitable organizations like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), is the children’s hospital for New York’s Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, Connecticut and the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since all donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay local, contributions made on National Pancake Day at area IHOP restaurants benefit Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and help improve the care of the region’s most seriously ill and injured children. This year, 11 local IHOP Restaurants in Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, Westchester and Fairfield Counties raised more than $52,000, the largest sum raised for Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in the event’s 13-year history.

The IHOP locations with the highest fundraising totals were in Newburgh, at $16,427, and in Mohegan Lake, at $16,000. Congratulations, and thank you, to all who participated and contributed!
