Free short stack? National Pancake Day is back

Posted: Updated:
On Tuesday, millions of pancakes will be eaten — for free, and for a good cause.

The pancake giant IHOP will host its annual National Pancake Day fundraiser March 3 at participating restaurants.

IHOP will offer guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. and 10 p.m as part of the event. In exchange, the restaurant asks that customers make a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals before they leave.

Last year, the company collected nearly $3 million in donations to children's charities and handed out 4.2 million free pancakes. IHOP is aiming to raise $3.5 million this year, which would bring its total raised in the 10 years since the fundraiser's inception to nearly $20 million, according to the chain.
