On March 7, the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) will be celebrating National Pancake Day by offering guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes*. With every short stack of pancakes served, diners will be encouraged to make a donation to designated charities, including Shriners Hospitals for Children. The IHOP restaurants that have chosen Shriners Hospitals for Children as the beneficiary of this event are predominately in Texas, with additional locations in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Wyoming.

On March 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with some locations participating until 10 p.m., guests at IHOP restaurants can enjoy a free short stack of delicious buttermilk pancakes. In return, the guests are asked to leave a donation of any amount that will go to the restaurant’s designated charity.

“We are grateful for the countless people who believe in and support our mission of improving the lives of children by providing specialized medical care, regardless of the families’ ability to pay for services,” said Jerry G. Gantt, president and chairman of the Board of Trustees, Shriners Hospitals for Children. “Because of your support, we are able to change the lives of thousands of children every year. We thank the people of IHOP for their generosity, and appreciate the opportunity National Pancake Day gives us to raise awareness and funds for our health care system.”

By visiting your local IHOP restaurant on National Pancake Day, you will have the opportunity to enjoy delicious, free pancakes while joining Shriners Hospitals for Children’s important mission to provide both hope and healing to children and families.
