Get free pancakes and help a child

  • Posted: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 10:05 a.m.

For the eighth consecutive year, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day, Feb. 5, 7 a.m.-10 p.m., in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Donations made at IHOPs in the Salisbury area will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at Levine Children’s Hospital. IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $13 million.


IHOP served 4 million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2012 and pancake lovers donated more than $3 million to children’s charities.

All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2012 would create a stack nearly 16 miles high.

Since the inception of National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million and given away more than 14 million pancakes to support charities in the communities in which it operates.

National Pancake Day 2012 was IHOP’s largest one-day event in the company’s 54-year history.
