**Save the Date: Tuesday, March 1st is 6th annual National Pancake Day at International House of Pancakes (IHOP)! This year’s goal is $2.3 Million. On this date, you will receive a FREE buttermilk short stack for just making a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®.**
How easy is that?
During last year’s event, over $2.1M was raised and about four million pancakes were served. Since 2006, IHOP has rasied over $5.35M to support this and other community charities. Let’s see if we can help surpass this year’s goal!
In the meantime, you can help out today! For starters, you can complete an online donation form. Also, until March 1st, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® is providing personalized “Miracle Balloons” for purchase at $1 and $5/each. Just another way to show your support and contribute to this worthy cause.
