What do actor/comedian Nick Cannon, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and IHOP have in common? They’re all observing IHOP’s National Pancake Day on Tuesday, February 5 while celebrating Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ 30th Anniversary. On this day, IHOP hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2013 year for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Other celebrities besides Nick Cannon celebrating the largest pancake party in the nation while supporting a good cause include NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young, Rock Legend Gene Simmons, American Idol Winner Jordin Sparks, and Children’s Miracle Network co-founder John Schneider.
The day-long fundraiser will take place on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and participating IHOP restaurants will give away millions of free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes. In return, IHOP hopes that this will spur a generous spirit from guests, who will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
