Enjoy Free Pancakes at IHOP and Help Riley Hospital

Visit IHOP on Tuesday, February 27, from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. for National Pancake Day and receive one complimentary short stack of buttermilk pancakes. In return for the free flapjacks, IHOP asks customers to consider a voluntary $5 donation for Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, Indiana’s only nationally ranked and comprehensive children’s hospital.

More than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the county participate in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations made at participating locations will benefit Riley Hospital, the only Children’s Miracle Network-affiliated hospital in Indiana.

IHOP raised more than $36,000 for Riley Hospital last year. Since launching National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised $30 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities nationwide.

To mark its milestone 60th year in business, IHOP and its franchisees have set an ambitious goal of raising $5 million for children’s hospitals and medical research during the two-month campaign – plus serving a record-breaking 5 million pancakes in a single day.

Through February 27, customers may also purchase Miracle Balloons in support of Riley Hospital for a $1, $5, $20 or $100 donation. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used on a future purchase of $10 or more.
