To celebrate National Pancake Day, those flapjack-lovers at IHOP have put together a special program. All 1,500 IHOP stores around the country will serve a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to each customer, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday.
As a bonus, Miss California - Noelle Freeman (pictured) - will cook and serve pancakes from 7 to 11 a.m. at the IHOP at 2941 Advantage Lane, Sacramento; (916) 575-9025.
The goal of the promotion is to raise $2.7 million for the Children's Miracle Network and other charities. To accomplish that, Sacramento-area customers will be encouraged to donate to CMN to benefit UC Davis Children's Hospital, which is a member. CMN raises money for more than 170 children's hospitals nationwide.
