Ninth Annual National Pancake Day

March 4, 2014, 7:54 AM by Brittany Larson

Ninth Annual National Pancake Day

On Tuesday, IHOP is celebrating National Pancake Day to help raise funds for children in need.

"Their goal is $3 million nationwide, including Canada. This is the first year for Canada as well. Last year they were so close. They did $2.9 million and here locally, we have been able to raise over $25,000 since we started doing National Pancake Day," Andy Kvernmo said.

The money raised will help support Sanford Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network. It goes for things like purchasing specialized equipment.

"We support camping programs. We have a program called Direct Child and Family Assistance where we can actually assist families up to $500 per year with things that aren't typically covered by insurance like meals, miles, lodging and things like that," Kvernmo said.

The staff at IHOP says they look forward to this event every year because it's always a huge success.

"They get excited you know and it's free pancakes and a donation. It's awesome people are very thankful and we have a lot of people you know that Children's Miracle Network has helped them and they come in and donate as well," IHOP Manager Sarai Espinoza said.

Guests can enjoy buttermilk pancakes and make a voluntary donation. And make sure to bring your appetite because they'll be serving pancakes all day long.

"All day in the morning, all day at lunch, anytime; so when you come in, there will be pancakes here," Espinoza said.

IHOP will be serving pancakes from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.
