IHOP restaurants will once again offer each guest a free short stack of their buttermilk pancakes on Free Pancake Day March 12. This family friendly tradition aims to raise money and awareness for Beaumont Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Free Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to Beaumont Children’s to help improve the lives of pediatric patients. Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised more than $30 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients across the country — including the 200,000 children treated annually at Beaumont Children’s.
Leading up to Free Pancake Day, participating IHOP restaurants also will sell “miracle balloons” for $1 and $5. The balloons will be available through Free Pancake Day, and all proceeds will go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used during their next dining visit.
Local IHOP restaurants are located in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights. To find other participating IHOP restaurants, or to make an online donation to Beaumont Children’s, click here.
“We are extremely grateful to IHOP and its patrons for their generous support of Beaumont Children’s,” said Dr. Brian Berman, pediatrician-in-chief of Beaumont Children’s. “These donations provide comfort and compassionate care to the many children and families who we serve.”
