IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital

Pancake Day to raise money for Akron Children's


IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer guests a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on Feb. 28, 2012 for National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. Akron Children’s Hospital is a founding member of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day from 7 a.m.-10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Miracle Balloons will be sold for $1 and $5 each, and can be personalized and displayed at participating IHOP restaurants leading up to National Pancake Day, offering guests another way to show their support for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and contribute to the National Pancake Day fundraising effort.
