Okla. IHOP Restaurants raise nearly 26,000 benefiting Children’s Hospital
OKLAHOMA – Through its ninth annual National Pancake Day fundraiser on March 4, IHOP Restaurants in Oklahoma City, Stillwater and Norman have reported a total of $25,741 raised to benefit Children’s Hospital Foundation.
This is in addition to the $17,965 that the local restaurants raised through its annual football fundraiser this past November that drew on the rivalry of Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma’s football teams, bringing the total to $43,706 for CHF over the past six months.
Combined, this is the most money ever raised in the restaurants’ fundraising history for CHF.
IHOP restaurants, offering “everything you love about breakfast,” served up free short stacks of its famous buttermilk pancakes to guests during its National Pancake Day fundraiser on March 4 with the hope of raising a total of $3 million dollars nationwide to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. More than 1,500 IHOP restaurants in the United States, and, for the first time, Canada and Puerto Rico, participated in the free pancake giveaway and encouraged guests to leave a voluntary donation in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.
