The IHOP restaurant at 1734 Wanamaker Rd. will be serving up stacks of buttermilk pancakes March 1 just like they do every day of the year. Except that this time they’ll be free. In celebration of National Pancake Day, IHOP restaurants nationwide are offering each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network. Donations made at the Topeka IHOP will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at St. Francis Health Center.
This year, IHOP has a goal to raise $2.3 million, for a total of more than $7.65 million in six years with its National Pancake Day fundraising effort.
Free pancakes will be served from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. and donations may be made in any amount throughout the day. If you can’t make it to IHOP on March 1 but still want to help out the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, you can make a donation here.
