​Free Pancakes at IHOP on Tuesday, March 8 to Support Children’s Specialized Hospital

February 22, 2016

On Tuesday, March 8, New Jersey IHOP restaurants will once again offer each guest a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day. This family-friendly tradition aims to raise needed funds and awareness for Children’s Specialized Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Children’s Specialized Hospital to celebrate this “Decade of Giving.” Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised approximately $15 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for child patients — including the 27,000 children treated annually at Children’s Specialized Hospital.

In the weeks leading up to National Pancake Day, participating IHOP restaurants will also sell “Miracle Balloons” for $1 and $5 to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The balloons will be available through National Pancake Day, and all proceeds will go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used during their next dining visit.
