Free Pancakes at IHOP on March 8 to Support Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children

National Pancake Day returns to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals 02/17/2016

girls in a red shirt at IHOPOahu IHOP restaurants will celebrate National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 8, and offer each guest a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes. This annual family-friendly tradition aims to raise needed funds and awareness for Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, Hawaii’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Kapiolani Medical Center. Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised more than $10 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for young patients at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide, including Kapiolani Medical Center.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Hawaii’s IHOP locations for National Pancake Day,” said Martha Smith, chief executive officer of Kapiolani Medical Center. “This event helps build awareness and raises funds to support programs and services to care for all of Hawaii’s children, and we thank the community for their continued support.”
