Mark Your Calendars, FEB 24=PANCAKE DAY

On February 24, 2009, IHOP restaurants around the country will be celebrating National Pancake day by giving out one free short stack (aka 3 pancakes) to customers. If you're feeling generous you can also donate to the Children's Miracle network in exchange for the pancakes. A donation is not required, but the event is to also raise money for the charity.

About National Pancake Day

February 24, 2009

Known also as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, National Pancake Day dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent. Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products…hence the name Pancake Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday.

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly two million dollars to support charities in the communities in which it operates. With your help, we hope to raise $1,000,000 for Children’s Miracle Network in 2009!

So, jump on that. Get your parade on some and then go get some free pancakes!
