IHOP is celebrating Pancake Day on Tuesday by treating diners to a short stack of buttermilk pancakes in hopes that many will in turn give back to help support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

My stepson and I just went to IHOP this past Sunday for breakfast. On Tuesday, March 7, our Texarkana IHOP restaurant will give away pancakes from 7AM to 7PM. With every short stack of pancakes served, you will be invited to make a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our Texarkana IHOP restaurant is celebrating the 12th anniversary of National Pancake Day.

More than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the United States will participate in this annual event. All of the donations raised stay within the communities, helping provide lifesaving treatment and equipment for local sick and injured children.

In the weeks leading up to National Pancake Day, participating IHOP restaurants will also sell “Miracle Balloons” to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. And to make it even more appealing to donate, the people who purchase a Miracle Balloon will receive a discount coupon that can be used during their next dining visit.
