IHOP to Raise Funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Throughout February and on National Pancake Day
On Tuesday, Feb. 27, IHOP restaurants will once again offer each guest a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day. This family-friendly tradition aims to raise needed funds and awareness for Beaumont Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Beaumont Children’s to help improve the lives of pediatric patients. Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised about $30 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients across the country - including the 200,000 children treated annually at Beaumont Children’s.
In the weeks leading up to National Pancake Day, participating IHOP restaurants will also sell “miracle balloons” for $1 and $5. The balloons will be available through National Pancake Day, and all proceeds will go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used during their next dining visit.
“We are extremely grateful to IHOP and it patrons for their generous support of Beaumont Children's,” said Brian Berman, M.D., pediatrician-in-chief of Beaumont Children’s. “These donations provide comfort and compassionate care to the many children and families who we serve."
