Free Pancakes on Tuesday, March 8, 2016
G o to a participating location of the International House of Pancakes on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 — in celebration of the eleventh consecutive year of what is being called National Pancake Day — from 7:00 in the morning through 7:00 in the afternoon to enjoy a free short stack of three buttermilk pancakes with no questions asked.
However, there is a catch: in return for the free pancakes, you will be encouraged to consider placing an optional monetary donation to support local children’s hospitals through Children’s Miracle Network, or other local charities.
The goal for this year is to donate a minimum of $3.5 million to charity. According to the official Internet web site of this annual promotion, “Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP restaurants have raised nearly $20 million to support charities in the communities in which they operate.”
The number was at $13 million only two years ago; and it was six years ago since I first wrote this article here at The Gate bringing attention to this promotion and charity cause.
If you enjoy eating pancakes while simultaneously doing a good deed by donating funds to charity, hop on over to IHOP on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, as this National Pancake Day promotion is for you.
