Flip it forward for KCH patients on Free Pancake Day

Stack of pancakes

/ by UK HealthCare

IHOP will host its 14th annual IHOP Free Pancake Day – Flip It Forward for Kids event on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. IHOP restaurants across America will serve guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes while collecting donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

All of the funds raised in Lexington, Richmond and Bowling Green during the IHOP Free Pancake Day campaign go toward improving the lives of kids being treated at Kentucky Children’s Hospital.

To kick off fundraising efforts early, guests visiting any IHOP restaurant between now and March 12 can help reach IHOP’s fundraising goal of $4 million by purchasing a “CMN Balloon Icon” wall tag to publicly pledge their support. Guests who purchase a $5 wall tag will receive a coupon for $5 off a $10 purchase for their next visit at IHOP. 

There is a limit of one free short stack per guest, and the offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last. The offer is not valid with any other offer, special, coupon or discount.

Want to do more? 

Sign up to volunteer at IHOP on Free Pancake Day. Your role will be to let guests know how donations can help children who visit KCH. We’ll give you plenty of coaching, and the best part in volunteering is no dish duty! Sign up here to volunteer on IHOP Free Pancake Day

You can also support the IHOP Kid Chef competition! The winning kid-created pancake will be sold in restaurants through April 14. One dollar of every sale of the kid-created pancake will go to CMNH.

For more information on this campaign or to find an IHOP near you, please visit or contact Lori Donaldson of the KCH Office of Philanthropy at 859-257-1179
