IHOP National Pancake Day Celebrates Children’s Miracle Networks

IHOP National Pancake Day Celebrates Children's Miracle Networks

Free Pancakes on Tuesday to Raise Awareness and Funds

 

MACON, GA (February 28, 2011) – For every delicious short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day on Tuesday, IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Donations made at IHOPs in the Macon area will benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals' program at The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia.

 

This year, IHOP is hoping to stack up more donations than ever before. The goal is to raise $2.3 million, for a total of more than $7.65 million in National Pancake Day's six year fundraising effort. To find a local IHOP or to donate online, visit www.IHOPPancakeDay.com.

 

The funds raised by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals have helped local children by providing child-friendly pediatric medical equipment such as pediatric ambulances. Additional funds have assisted The Children's Hospital in the establishment and expansion of numerous areas of the facility, including but not limited to: the Children's Health Center, Crescent House, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Critical Care and most recently the establishment of a Pediatric Intermediate Care Unit for children in central and south Georgia.

 

IHOP served four million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2010, which would have created a stack more than 31.5 miles high. Pancake donors exceeded the fundraising goal by donating more than $2.1 million to children's charities. Since the campaign's inception in 2006, IHOP has raised for than $5.35 million and gave away more than 10.1 million pancakes.
