National Pancake Day Fundraiser Flips for Kentucky Children’s Hospital

Published: Feb 1, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 1, 2013) − In celebration of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals 30th Anniversary and National Pancake Day, IHOP is hosting the largest pancake party in the country 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 5.  

 

IHOP will allow guests to enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes; in return, guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, to improve the lives of children at the 170 network hospitals across the country. All of the funds raised locally will benefit Kentucky Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals facility.

 

IHOP served four million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2012 and raised more than $3 million in donations to give to children’s charities. With over 1,500 restaurants participating in National Pancake Day 2013, IHOP hopes to raise $3 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. This amount marks IHOP’s goal to bring the total amount of monies raised for local charities to more than $13 million in eight years. 

  

For more information, visit the IHOP website at www.ihoppancakeday.com, or contact Chloe Hurley, Kentucky Children’s Hospital’s CMNH director, at (859) 257-1179, or chloe.hurley@uky.edu. For more information about Kentucky Children's Hospital, go to www.givetokch.org.
