Free pancakes at IHOP Tuesday


What can make a short stack of buttermilk pancakes taste better? Knowing that they're free, and that any money donated will benefit children's hospitals.

Tuesday is National Pancake Day at IHOP and the chain is giving away short stacks of fluffy pancakes to help raise awareness and funding for Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

IHOP served four million free pancakes last year and donated more than $2.1 million to children's charities. This year, the chain is hoping to raise $2.3 million, according to an IHOP news release.

With every short stack served, customers are invited to donate to the Children's Miracle Network. Donations at Sacramento area IHOP restaurants will benefit the organization's programs at UC Davis Children's Hospital.

IHOP created the National Pancake Day program in 2006 and since then has raised more than $5.35 million.
