The IHOPs in Cumming and Dawsonville will be among some 1,500 restaurants nationwide that will serve free pancakes Tuesday as part of the company’s observance of National Pancake Day.
From from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., customers can enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.
They are invited to donate what they would have paid for the free pancakes to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or other worthy local causes.
In addition, guests can show their support by buying a “miracle" balloon.
IHOP hopes the annual program will raise $2.3 million for the charity, which helps support 170 children’s hospitals.
Last year, IHOP served about 4 million free pancakes and raised more than $2.1 million in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.
