IHOP Serving Up a Free Shortstack for National Pancake Day
2011-03-01 · By Editor
IHOP is firing up the griddle this morning and getting ready to serve free pancakes to America — including Long Beach. Today is National Pancake Day and the company hopes to raise $2.3 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a charity that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals, as well as other worthy local causes.
On Tuesday, March 1, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants throughout the United States are inviting guests to enjoy a free short stack of IHOP’s signature buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Diners are invited to donate what they would have paid for the free pancakes, or more, to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or other worthy causes. This philanthropic endeavor is part of the sixth annual National Pancake Day
National Pancake Day
“IHOP’s National Pancake Day has become a highly anticipated annual event in communities throughout the United States, and provides our guests a fun opportunity to support the efforts of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities,” said Jean Birch, IHOP’s president. “Last year, we surpassed our goal of raising $5 million in our first five years, and this year we are raising the bar again with our most ambitious fundraising goal to date.”
Additionally, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals “Miracle Balloons” will be sold for $1 and $5 each and will be personalized and displayed at participating IHOP restaurants from February 1 through March 1, 2011. Miracle Balloons offer guests an additional way to show their support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and contribute to the IHOP National Pancake Day fundraising effort.
