COLUMBIA — IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its buttermilk pancakes in honor of National Pancake Day on Tuesday. The event lasts from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The Columbia IHOP at 51 Conley Road is among the participating restaurants. All donations made there will stay local and will be used for patients at MU Children's Hospital.
Nationwide, the goal is to raise awareness and donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. IHOP hopes to raise $2.7 million this year, which would bring the total from the past seven years to more than $10 million. Last year's donations alone totaled more than $2.5 million, and four million free pancakes were served.
