Fundraiser Aims to Raise $3 Million to Kick Off Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ 30th Anniversary
Tuesday, February 5th, is National Pancake Day at International House of Pancakes (IHOP)! Since the program's launch in 2006, IHOP has raised close to $10M to benefit Children's Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals® and other community charities.
