IHOP is once again raising funds for local charities through National Pancake Day, with a goal in 2013 to raise $3 million across the country. Restaurants in your area are raising funds for Shriners Hospitals.
The concept is simple: on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, IHOP will give away millions of free pancakes to guests at their restaurants throughout the United States. Anticipating that a delicious short stack of complimentary buttermilk pancakes will spur a generous spirit, each guest will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to a local charity.
Now in its eighth year and with more than 1,500 restaurants participating, IHOP hopes to raise $3 million with its National Pancake Day celebration. This amount marks IHOP's goal to bring the total amount of monies raised for local charities to more than $10 million in eight years.
