The public is encouraged to help Children’s Hospital at Erlanger pediatric patients while enjoying complimentary pancakes at one of Chattanooga’s five local IHOP restaurants on Tuesday. IHOP’s National Pancake Day aims to raise needed funds to provide life-saving technology and facilities to patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

IHOP guests can receive a free short stack of the brand’s original buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. – with select locations participating until 10 p.m. 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 collected in the Chattanooga region going to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger.


“Last year, our local IHOP locations raised more than $10,000 for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger,” said Rebecca Brinkley, director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. “We are so appreciative of their hard work and continued support as we focus on raising funds for the first phase of our new Children’s Hospital.”

Between now and March, guests have several ways to support Children’s Hospital at Erlanger including:

- Visiting any IHOP Restaurant on Tuesday, during event hours and donating to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger after enjoying a free stack of IHOP’s world-famous Buttermilk Pancakes.
- Purchasing a wall icon in increments of $1, $5, $20 or $100 between January 31 and February 27, 2018 to show support.
- Enjoying a meal at any IHOP restaurant between January 31 and March 31, 2018 and making an in-restaurant cash contribution or on-check donation to the featured charity partner.

“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 towards helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country.”
