FREE SHORT STACK OF PANCAKES AT IHOP® Restaurants MARCH 3
National Pancake Day Fundraiser Aims to Raise $3.5 Million for Tenth Anniversary
WHAT: IHOP® Restaurants nationwide are celebrating IHOP Restaurants’ “Decade of Giving” on the tenth anniversary of National Pancake Day, when the family-friendly restaurant will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes in an effort to raise $3.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals programs nationwide.
WHY: On National Pancake Day, IHOP Restaurants guests are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in exchange for a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.
