Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Events

March 4

How can you eat well and help the children of our region? By celebrating National Pancake Day at a Hudson Valley or Fairfield County IHOP restaurant!

On Tuesday, March 4, in exchange for one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes, IHOP will request a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). Since all donations to CMNH stay local, your contributions will benefit Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, the children’s hospital for the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County!

So, mark your calendars and plan an outing with friends and family to an IHOP restaurant March 4. For a list of participating restaurants and their addresses, please visit www.westchestermedicalcenter.com/pancakeday



Rite Aid will kick off its 20th annual paper Miracle Balloon campaign to raise funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals this April. Since 1994, Rite Aid associates, suppliers and customers have raised and donated more than $51 million to support pediatric medical services, ground-breaking research and state-of-the-art technology that improves and saves the lives of children every day.

Every dollar that is donated at your local Hudson Valley or Fairfield County, CT, Rite Aid store will benefit Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. Plus, when you purchase a balloon, you will receive Rite Aid coupons.


May is for Miracles and Walmart and Sam’s Club stock them each May!  Walmart and Sam’s Clubs have raised more than $600 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1987 when ‘Mr. Sam’ agreed to allow the associates to raise money for children’s hospitals with the promise “the associates will amaze you”... indeed they have!  Please visit your closest Walmart or Sam's Club in the Hudson Valley or Fairfield County, CT to buy a Miracle Balloon to benefit our children's hospital.  (Click Walmart logo to learn more)

Costco employees’ hearts are as big as the warehouses they work in.  In May, Costco takes donations through sales of miracle balloons, visit the Costco closest to you in Norwalk, New Rochelle, Portchester, Yonkers or Nanuet to make a donation to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital and tell the team there how much you appreciate what they are doing to support your local children’s hospital!

Let someone know they're a Miracle Mom to you.  Visit any of these great retail locations to pick up your limited edition Creating Miracles Charm Bracelets. $10 from the sale of each will support children’s hospitals.  When you shop with any of the three wonderful  boutiques, you can also donate at the checkout...and online, too!
