Free pancakes at IHOP Tuesday


Special to The U-R

GLENDALE, Calif. — For the eighth consecutive year, IHOP® restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday 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 voluntary donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Donations made at IHOPs in the Milledgeville area will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at Children's Hospital at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. 

IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $13 million.
