IHOP serves pancakes to patients at Children’s Hospital

IHOP associates flipped pancakes for patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger today to celebrate raising more than $8,000 during National Pancake Day.

On Tuesday, March 3, five local IHOP restaurants offered each guest a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day. This family-friendly tradition raises needed funds and awareness for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests were invited to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger to celebrate this “Decade of Giving.” Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised approximately $13 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients — including more than 42,000 children treated annually at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.

“Each year, our local IHOP restaurants and their associates step it up during National Pancake Day,” said Rebecca Brinkley, director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.  “We are grateful for their enthusiastic support for our patients and thank all the customers who donated to this year’s campaign.”
