National Pancake Day is February 25th.
Every year, IHOP offers a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to celebrate.
This year, the restaurant has decided to be in more of the giving mood, offering more than 250,000 instant win prizes, including a grand prize of free pancakes for life.
To enter, patrons simply need to scan a QR code located on the signage at their table to find out if they’re a winner.
“IHOP launched its National Pancake Day event 15 years ago as a way to celebrate the best food ever – pancakes – and put a purpose behind the day by partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities to help kids in our communities,” said Stephanie Peterson, Executive Director of Communications, IHOP.
In lieu of charging for pancakes, the restaurant asks their guests to make a donation to a local children's hospital or charity in the area.
IHOP says it has raised over $30 million since 2006 for local charities during National Pancake Day.
