IHOP Sets Goal To Raise $5 Million For Local Charities With Its Fifth National Pancake Day

IHOP restaurants nationwide will celebrate National Pancake Day on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 from 7 am to 10 pm, offering a free short stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes to each guest. In exchange for the free flapjacks, IHOP will ask guests to consider making a voluntary contribution to Children’s Miracle Network or other local charities.

This year marks IHOP’s fifth year of offering free pancakes on National Pancake Day. To date, the company has raised more than $3.25 million for Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities nationwide through the family-friendly National Pancake Day philanthropic effort. This year, IHOP hopes to reach a milestone by raising a cumulative total of $5 million in five years and has set the 2010 National Pancake Day fundraising goal at $1.75 million.

*NOTE: While National Pancake Day will take place on February 23, 2010, IHOP will offer events and activities throughout the month of February, including additional opportunities to support Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities

Although IHOP is raising money for an extremely worth cause we may want to keep in mind that the company has been exposed for animal cruelty and food safety issues in its supply chain. For more details, please check out www.humanesociety.org/ihop.
