MILWAUKEE (2/19/2010) - For the fifth year, IHOP will give away millions of its signature pancakes for National Pancake Day. Receive one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, to benefit Children's Miracle Network hospitals. IHOP hopes that guests will make a voluntary donation to support local children's hospitals such as Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin-Fox Valley.
Miss Wisconsin 2009, Kristina Smaby, will visit two southeast Wisconsin IHOP restaurants to celebrate National Pancake Day. She will be at the Miller Park IHOP, 1110 Miller Park Way, West Milwaukee, Wis., from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the Layton Avenue IHOP, 1010 W. Layton Ave., Milwaukee, from 11 a.m. to noon.
IHOP launched its National Pancake Day fundraising effort in 2006 to benefit the communities in which it operates. Last year's fundraiser served 2.5 million pancakes and raised nearly $1.5 million for local children's hospitals. This year, IHOP is hoping to serve up more donations than ever before, with a goal to raise $1.75 million, for a total of $5 million in five years.
