IHOP pancakes

MILWAUKEE — Tuesday, March 7th is National Pancake Day — and at participating IHOP restaurants in the Milwaukee area, you can get a FREE short stack of pancakes, and this is an effort to help sick children.

According to a release from IHOP officials, while celebrating its 12th annual National Pancake Day, the company hopes to raise $3.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network.

On National Pancake Day, guests who visit participating restaurants will receive a free short stack of IHOP’s world-famous buttermilk pancakes, and in return, they’ll be asked to leave a voluntary donation to benefit the CMN Hospital in Milwaukee.
