SoutheastHEALTH, IHOP Partner for Healthcare

October 29, 2014


Join SoutheastHEALTH in welcoming IHOP to Cape Girardeau on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 3 and 4, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The owners of the restaurant, Andy and Anissa Patel, will donate 100 percent of gross proceeds during those hours on Monday to benefit breast cancer patients via the Southeast Cancer Patient Experience Fund. Tuesday’s proceeds, which will be donated in honor of Dahya Patel, the father of restaurant owner Andy Patel, will aid SoutheastHEALTH’s new neonatal intensive care unit and Southeast’s Women’s & Children’s Services.

As part of Southeast’s “Bravest Wear Pink” breast cancer awareness campaign, Cape Girardeau police and firefighters will greet guests at IHOP. KEZS Radio will do a live remote on Monday morning at IHOP. On Tuesday, fairy tale princesses will visit with guests, adding a special magic to meals, along with other fun-filled activities including a live remote by KGMO Radio.

Anissa Patel says, “Andy and I are passionate about giving back to the community whenever the opportunity arises. The opening of IHOP in Cape allows us to let the community know that we are all about giving back. We hope everyone will come out on Nov. 3 and 4 to embrace these causes with us as a community.”

The IHOP restaurant is located at 2406 William Street, next to Dairy Queen.
