Hungry pancake-lovers can eat free for charity today at the International House of Pancakes (NYSE:DIN).
The chain is providing free pancakes to customers and asking them to contribute to charity for today only, reports The Los Angeles Times. IHOP as a whole elected to sponsor the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, while each store can also list local charities to receive donations. CMNH raises money to support 170 non-profit healthcare facilities for children.
This is the eighth year that the restaurant has sponsored what it has dubbed “National Pancake Day.”. Over the eight years the chain has raised more than $10 million for various groups by giving away pancakes. The company hopes to raise $3 million this year.
Celebrities even get involved with the even. This year’s Miss America Mallory Hagan is scheduled to appear and flip pancakes at the chain’s Hollywood restaurant.
