Eight IHOP® Restaurants in Connecticut will join hundreds across the nation in celebrating its 15th annual IHOP National Pancake Day event on Tuesday, February 25, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Participating IHOP Restaurants will serve up a free short stack of its world-famous buttermilk pancakes for patrons while collecting donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, of which Connecticut Children’s is part.
Visit Your Local IHOP
Local IHOP Restaurants participating in National Pancake Day this year include those in Bloomfield, Hamden, Manchester, Newington, Orange, Southington, Wallingford and Waterbury. In 2019, local IHOP Restaurants raised more than $27,000 through its National Pancake Day event and Balloon Campaign. This year, staff and volunteers from Connecticut Children’s will be on hand to greet guests.
This year, IHOP expects to serve a record-breaking 5 million pancakes in a single day to support its charity partners.

Dairy Queen® loves kids. Whether its kids’ sports teams celebrating at our restaurants after games, children enjoying dinner with their parents or teenagers visiting for cool treats at the end of a date, DQ® and kids go hand in hand. And if these cherished youngsters ever become sick or injured, we want to help assure they have the best medical care available. That’s why the DQ® system has been a proud national partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1984.
