Philadelphia, PA - Enjoy complimentary pancakes at IHOP Restaurants On "National Pancake Day" February 27, while helping the IHOP reach Its fundraising goal of $5 Million towards local children's health charities.
Guests are asked to make a difference by leaving a donation of any size in-restaurant or on-check, with all funds collected staying in the community where they were raised. To mark its milestone 60th year in business, IHOP and its franchisees have set an ambitious goal of raising $5 million for children's hospitals and medical research during the two-month campaign – plus serving a record-breaking 5 million pancakes in a single day.
"For 60 years, IHOP and our franchisees have made it our mission to support the communities we serve. IHOP National Pancake Day is our declaration to pancake lovers everywhere that we are committed to giving back in meaningful ways," said Darren Rebelez, President of IHOP. "At IHOP, we think doing good is delicious. Every stack of pancakes we serve on our signature day counts toward helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country."
As the most anticipated event of the year for pancake lovers since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has become a pop-culture phenomenon. With the help of millions of guests and communities, IHOP and its franchisees have raised close to $30 million to-date for youth health, wellness and educational organizations. All the money raised during this year's 60 Days of Giving campaign – which is a nod to the brand's 60th anniversary – will stay local and benefit thousands of children's hospitals across the country.
