(FOX19) - For the ninth consecutive year, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 4.
The event lasts 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and it's part of an effort to raise $3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals programs nationwide.
Tune in at 9:40 a.m. as FOX19's Denise Johnson reports live from the IHOP on Marburg Ave. this morning!
For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to nearly $16 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.
Last year, IHOP served 4.5 million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2013 and pancake lovers donated nearly $3 million to children's charities.
Fun fact: All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2013 would create a stack nearly 13 miles high!
