Nationwide Children’s Hospital and IHOP Partner to Help Kids Everywhere During National Pancake Day

Columbus, OH - 2/11/2015

Nationwide Children’s Hospital and all seven central Ohio IHOP franchises are pleased to announce their partnership that will benefit children locally, as well as everywhere. Central Ohio patrons will have an opportunity to help kids everywhere with a purchase of the recognizable Children’s Miracle Network balloon icon from Feb. 1-March 3. With all funds supporting Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital, the campaign will culminate with the popular National Pancake Day Tuesday March 3.
 
Prior and during National Pancake Day, with their purchase of the balloon icon, guests of the seven central Ohio IHOP locations – Chillicothe, Heath, Lancaster, Renner Road (Hilliard), Reynoldsburg, Sawmill Road and Westerville – will have an opportunity to include their name on the CMN balloon icon, which will be displayed throughout the restaurants.
 
The signature event for all CMN hospitals and IHOP, National Pancake Day will occur from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. March 3. During this time, customers can order a short stack of buttermilk pancakes at no cost. Each of the seven central Ohio IHOP locations will continue to accept voluntary donations during National Pancake Day as well.
 
Since beginning National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary of its busiest day of the year, has raised $13 million in support of a variety of charities in their local communities.
