Breakfast for dinner?
IHOP is giving away free pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday, as part of a promotion to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The chain will give one complimentary short stack to each customer in the hope that customers will in turn make a donation to the nonprofit, which supports children's hospitals. IHOP typically offers free pancakes on Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday. The holiday is often known as Pancake Day in English-speaking countries, where pancakes traditionally are made to use up dairy products ahead of Lent. This year the giveaway was moved up a week to help boost fund-raising efforts.
IHOP hopes to raise $2.3 million for the network, which provides funding for children’s hospitals across the country.
