IHOP Holds Annual National Pancake Day to Support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Feb. 20, 2017

Anyone who has a love for pancakes and a passion to help children will have the perfect opportunity to meet both needs with an annual event by IHOP that benefits Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Participating IHOP restaurants in the Tri-Cities area will have the batter ready for National Pancake Day Tuesday, March 7. Everyone who comes to the restaurant that day can order a free short stack of pancakes and donate the cost of the tasty food – or more if they prefer – to Children’s Miracle Network.

Wellmont Health System has been the region’s affiliate of Children's Miracle Network for 30 years, and all money raised locally stays in the area to benefit children of all ages. Wellmont uses proceeds to purchase equipment for its pediatric departments, neonatal intensive care unit and emergency departments and to fund community partnerships that advance children’s health.

“We’re grateful to partnering organizations, such as IHOP, which are vital to the success of Children’s Miracle Network,” said Todd Norris, Wellmont’s senior vice president for system advancement and Wellmont Foundation’s president. “The children we serve benefit greatly from the dedication and perseverance of these national sponsors and local businesses. We also achieve great results because of their customers, who also recognize the value of supporting Children’s Miracle Network.”
