IHOP Philippines to raise funds for children with pediatric cancer on National Pancake Day 2016

IHOP Restaurants and Kythe Foundation announce that proceeds from IHOP’s P250 eat-all-you-can-buttermilk-pancakes on March 8 (National Pancake Day) will support the Kythe Foundation’s mission of battling pediatric cancer in the Philippines. IHOP Philippines first took part in National Pancake Day last year and raised P400,000 for the Foundation. This year, IHOP PH aims for P600,000.

We’re raffling off P1,500 worth of IHOP GC’s. To join, complete the rafflecopter tasks below.

Guests can enjoy Eat-All-You-Can-Eat Buttermilk Pancakes for only P250 knowing that P200 from that amount will be donated to the Kythe Foundation’s goal of fighting pediatric cancer in the country.

On March 8, all IHOP restaurants in the Philippines will again join locations throughout the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Mexico in celebrating a beloved IHOP tradition: National Pancake Day.

Atty. Arnel Jose S. Bañas of Kythe Foundation (left most) and Archie Rodriguez, CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts, Inc. (an IHOP restaurant franchisee in the Philippines), flank two Kythe Foundation beneficiaries.

IHOP is located at Bonifacio Global City, UP Town Center, Araneta Center, SM Mall of Asia, Filinvest City in Alabang; and Century City Mall in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati.

From 7am to 10pm on March 8, 2016, all 6 IHOP locations will offer guests a chance to enjoy unlimited servings of the world famous buttermilk pancakes for only P250, to enjoy inside the restaurant.

P200 out of the P250 generated from those pancakes will, just like last year, be donated to the Kythe Foundation, which provides children with cancer and chronic illnesses the chance to learn, play, and grow while in treatment, even if they are in the hospital.

National Pancake Day started in the US in 1995 and has raised $20 million in the past decade for children’s health charities in local communities. When IHOP PH joined the celebration last year, they were able to raise P400,000 for the Kythe Foundation.
