Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and IHOP Team Up to Help Local Kids

Friday, February 25th, 2022

IHOP Restaurants have set the date for its annual IHOP National Pancake Day® event, culminating the all-day breakfast leader’s first-ever “Month of Giving” campaign. As the brand’s signature philanthropic event, IHOP National Pancake Day and all related activities directly benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities dedicated to finding cures and eradicating life-threatening diseases that affect children and families. 

On Tuesday, March 1, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. guests can receive a free short stack* of the brand’s world-famous, freshly made buttermilk pancakes at IHOP Restaurants nationwide. 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 going to the charity partners’ local hospital affiliate. At the IHOP in Albany, all donations will benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Phoebe.

This year, every dollar raised locally will help fund life-saving equipment, advanced treatment and programs that benefit the NICU and pediatric patients at Phoebe. “Last year the fundraising event was cancelled due to COVID, so we are excited to once again partner with our local IHOP to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network here at Phoebe. Every penny raised stays local to help provide the best care for children in southwest Georgia,” said Becca Miller, CMN and Development Coordinator, Phoebe Foundation.

Since 1997, Children’s Miracle Network supporters have raised more than $4.5 million to provide specialized equipment and programs to help babies and children treated at Phoebe. From life-saving equipment to treat our most critically ill newborns to life-enhancing toys in the Pediatrics Unit playroom, every child needing Phoebe’s care has benefited from funds raised through the Children’s Miracle Network.
