Be one of millions to enjoy a free short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes on February 28, when National Pancake Day returns for the seventh year! From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., families and friends can enjoy a free short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes, and in turn, make a donation to IHOP’s national charity partner, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which helps improve the lives of children at the 170 Network hospitals nationwide. All of the funds raised in Orange County will benefit CHOC Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital.
With over 1,500 restaurants participating in National Pancake Day, IHOP hopes to raise $2.7 million for Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities. This amount marks IHOP’s goal to bring the total amount of monies raised for local charities to more than $10 million in seven years.
A great offer like this does have some rules - there is a limit of one free short stack per guest, and the offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last, and is not valid with any other offer, special, coupon or discount.
