IHOP’s National Pancake Day offers free pancakes and benefits Shriners Hospitals for Children

On March 8, 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.

“We hope to exceed $1 million in contributions during this year’s National Pancake Day, which will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.,” said Ken Flournoy, committee chairman and member of the Shriners Hospitals for Children — Houston Board of Governors. In addition to raising funds, the campaign generates tremendous awareness of Shriners Hospitals for Children.

“We appreciate everyone who has joined our mission to help children in need of expert, specialty medical care,” said Dale W. Stauss, president and chairman of the Board of Trustees, Shriners Hospitals for Children. “With your support, we are able to improve the lives of thousands of children every year. We commend the generosity of IHOP, and appreciate the opportunity 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.
