IHOP Pancake Day to support Children’s Hospital of Georgia

Media Advisory for Tuesday, March 12

WHAT: You can help provide specialized pediatric care at the not-for-profit Children’s Hospital of Georgia when you order pancakes at IHOP for the annual Pancake Day fundraiser.

BACKGROUND: During this annual National Pancake Day fundraiser, IHOP restaurants will serve free short stacks of their famous buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at locations in Augusta, Evans, North Augusta and Aiken. In lieu of the meal cost, IHOP guests are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Hospital of Georgia, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Funds raised locally in previous years have gone toward renovations in CHOG’s level IV NICU, the special care nursery, the PICU, pediatric surgery resources, blanket warmers and much more.
