Enjoy free pancakes at IHOP for a great cause

The In­ter­na­tion­al House of Pan­cakes has in­vited guests to en­joy free pan­cakes dur­ing Na­tion­al Pan­cake Day on Tues­day, Feb. 5, while cel­eb­rat­ing Chil­dren’s Mir­acle Net­work Hos­pit­als’ 30th an­niversary. That day, the res­taur­ant chain hopes to raise $3 mil­lion as the first na­tion­al fund-rais­ing cam­paign to kick off the 2013 fund-rais­ing year for Chil­dren’s Mir­acle Net­work Hos­pit­als.

Dur­ing Na­tion­al Pan­cake Day, more than 1,500 IHOP res­taur­ants across the coun­try will in­vite guests to en­joy com­pli­ment­ary stacks of IHOP’s sig­na­ture but­ter­milk pan­cakes from 7 to 10 a.m. Guests will be en­cour­aged to make vol­un­tary con­tri­bu­tions to the loc­al Chil­dren’s Mir­acle Net­work Hos­pit­al or oth­er loc­al char­it­ies. One-hun­dred per­cent of the dona­tions will help char­it­ies provide vi­tal equip­ment, lifesav­ing pro­ced­ures and crit­ic­al care for sick and in­jured chil­dren. Guests vis­it­ing par­ti­cip­at­ing IHOPs will also have the op­tion to pur­chase “Mir­acle Bal­loons” for $1 and $5 each throughout Janu­ary, lead­ing in­to Na­tion­al Pan­cake Day, with all pro­ceeds be­ne­fit­ing Chil­dren’s Mir­acle Net­work Hos­pit­als. Those who buy a $5 bal­loon will re­ceive $5 IHOP coupons re­deem­able dur­ing their next vis­it. ••
