Area IHOP Restaurants Offer Free Pancakes On National Pancake Day; Raising Money For Children’s Hospital

Friday, February 14, 2014

Five local IHOP restaurants will once again offer guests a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day, on Tuesday, March 4. This family-friendly tradition aims to raise needed funds and awareness for T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on March 4, between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Hospital. Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised more than $10 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients — including the 36,000 patients treated annually at our region’s only children’s hospital.

“IHOP has been a tremendous partner for us,” said Rebecca Brinkley, Children’s Hospital CMN representative.  “Even our associates and patients cannot wait to participate in National Pancake Day each year.  In 2013, the local restaurants and their customers raised more than $13,000 for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, and we look forward to another successful event this year.”

Be sure to stop in at any of the following IHOP locations on March 4 to benefit Children’s Hospital at Erlanger:

5814 Brainerd Road, Chattanooga, TN 37411

5113 Hwy 153, Hixson, TN 37343

2047 Battlefield Parkway, Fort Oglethorpe, GA 30742

1510 Walnut Ave, Dalton, GA 30720
