Free flapjacks--National Pancake Day returns to IHOP February 28

National Pancake Day Returns to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

For the seventh consecutive year, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. National Pancake Day is Tuesday, February 28 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Donations made at IHOPs will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at Children's Hospital Boston.

IHOP hopes to raise $2.7 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $10 million.
