IHOP to Raise Funds on Behalf of Nationwide Children’s Hospital

January 17, 2018

Throughout the month of February, central Ohio IHOP franchises and their customers will have an opportunity to raise funds on behalf of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital. Patrons of 10 local IHOP locations can purchase the recognizable CMN balloon icon until the campaign culminates with National Pancake Day, Feb. 27.

National Pancake Day is the signature event for all CMN hospitals and IHOP. From 7 a.m.-7 p.m. customers can order a short stack of buttermilk pancakes at no cost, however donations are encouraged.

Prior to and during National Pancake Day, with the purchase of the balloon icon, guests of the central Ohio IHOP locations can include their name on the CMN balloon decal, which will be displayed throughout the restaurants. Please see below for a full list of participating locations.

Since beginning National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $23 million in support of a variety of charities in their local communities.
