    Batter up, breakfast lovers! IHOP® will once again invite guests to enjoy free pancakes while celebrating Children's Miracle Network Hospitals' 31st Anniversary during National Pancake Day on March 4, 2014. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2014 fundraising year for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

    During National Pancake Day, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOP's signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Ministry Saint Joseph's Children's Hospital. One hundred percent of the donations will stay local in North Central Wisconsin to help provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for sick and injured children.

    Guests visiting participating IHOP restaurants in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals will also have the option to purchase "Miracle Balloons" for $1 and $5 each, throughout the month of February leading into National Pancake Day, with all proceeds going to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Those who buy a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be credited toward their next visit.

    Local IHOPs participating are in Rib Mountain and Plover. For more information on National Pancake Day or to find a participating restaurant, visit ihoppancakeday.com.

  • Radiothon raises $90,183 for Children’s Miracle Network
    September 11 – 13, 2013

    A total of $90,183 was raised during the 2013 Y106 Children’s Miracle Network Radiothon, held September 11 to 13 at Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital. This was the 11th year for the radiothon, which was hosted by Y106 radio announcers Pat and AJ Clark and RW Smith. During the event, hosts shared stories of and did live interviews with children and families who have been helped through the Children’s Miracle Network. For Pat, hosting the annual event has been a labor of love. “Watching how our listening family supports their local community is beyond touching,” he said. “The stories of the challenges these brave children and their families face, and how CMN has made those challenges a little easier, makes it all a little more worthwhile. I am so proud to be able to facilitate these generous donations.” The radiothon is an excellent opportunity to share the CMN story, said Patti Shafto-Carlson, Hospital CMN/Foundation director. “It also allows our associates to step back and listen to the patients and families express their appreciation for their care,” she said. “Listeners continually say thank you, for oftentimes they too have been touched by the multitude of programs funded through Children’s Miracle Network.” Shafto-Carlson also praised the dedication of Y106. “To put aside their normal programming for three days and commit themselves to helping local and area sick and injured children demonstrates the level of compassion they have for making a difference in our community,” she said.
