Free pancakes today at IHOP fundraiser
IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day today by offering free pancakes as part of an effort to raise $3 million for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
During the company's largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country - including the IHOP at 224 South River Road in Bedford - will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. One hundred percent of the donations will help local charities provide equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for children.
