Free Pancakes for a Good Cause

IHOP’s 9th Annual Pancake Day is set for Tuesday, March 4th.

Come to any IHOP in the Winston-Salem/Greensboro area to receive a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7am-10am. While the short stacks are free, IHOP does ask you to consider donating to the Duke Children’s Hospital and Health Center.

It is IHOP’s goal to reach $3 million in donations this year. Since the first National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $13 million dollars for charities nationwide.
