SAN DIEGO -- Today at IHOP restaurants around the country and in San Diego County, all customers will receive a free short stack of pancakes in celebration of National Pancake Day.
Since 2006, IHOP has observed the day with the free pancake giveaway, while raising money for charity. This year, customers will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in exchange for the free pancakes.
IHOP says it has raised more than $13 million for various charities in the eight years it has hosted this day. The company hopes to raise $3 million this year.
