On Tuesday, March 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. IHOP guests can receive a free short stack of the brand’s world-famous, freshly made buttermilk pancakes at restaurants coast to coast. In return, guests are asked to help make a difference by leaving a donation of any size with all funds from local IHOP locations benefitting HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Participating IHOP locations include Decatur, Jacksonville and both Springfield locations (Sunrise Drive and Wabash Ave.).

Since launching in 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has become a pop-culture phenomenon with millions of guests and communities helping IHOP and its franchisees raise $24 million to-date for youth health and wellness organizations. This year IHOP plans to serve a record-breaking five million pancakes and raise more than $3.5 million! All of the money raised on IHOP National Pancake Day stays local and directly helps children in need.

There is a way that you can help now as well. IHOP restaurants are selling Miracle Balloons through March 7. Guests visiting any IHOP restaurant in the U.S. can help reach the ambitious $3.5 million goal by purchasing a Miracle Balloon to publicly pledge support or donate. Select IHOP restaurants will offer a discount coupon that can for a future visit with the purchase of a Miracle Balloon.

For more information, to find a local IHOP or to make an online donation to St. John’s Children’s Hospital, visit www.IHOPpancakeday.com.
