IHOP Hosts National Pancake Day To Support Children’s Hospital At Erlanger

Monday, February 24, 2020

The public is invited to help Children’s Hospital at Erlanger patients while enjoying complimentary pancakes at one of Chattanooga’s five IHOP restaurants on Tuesday. IHOP’s National Pancake Day aims to raise needed funds to provide life-saving technology and facilities to patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

IHOP guests can receive a free short stack of the brand’s original buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. – with select locations participating until 10 p.m. In return, guests are asked to help make a difference by leaving a donation of any size on-check or in-restaurant with all funds collected in the Chattanooga region going to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.

Patrons can also purchase a wall icon in increments of $1, $5, $20 or $100.

Last year, local IHOP restaurants collected over $7,000 during the campaign, a 31 percent increase from 2018.

Stop in at any of the following IHOP locations to support 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
4323 Freedom Parkway, NW, Cleveland, TN  37312

All funds raised locally through this year’s IHOP National Pancake Day will support Children’s Hospital at Erlanger’s efforts to continue to provide specialized, pediatric care to the region.

These donations have helped provide specialty care and equipment in a pediatric-centered environment. Most recently, these funds have supported the creation of the Children’s Kennedy Outpatient Center.
