IHOP serving free pancakes, raising funds for children's hospital

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - IHOP is serving up free pancakes on Tuesday morning in hopes of raising money for the Children's Miracle Network, a fund for children's hospitals across America.

From 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., folks are able to enjoy a complimentary short stack of pancakes, but are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to support the local Children's Miracle Network hospital, MUSC's Children's Hospital.

All the money raised will be put to good use to provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures, and critical care for sick and injured children.

This is the eighth year IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which has raised more than $10 million and last year alone, the restaurant raised over $3 million.

There are Lowcountry IHOP locations: on Savannah Highway in West Ashley; on Mazyck Road and Centre Point Drive in North Charleston; on North Main Street and Dorchester Road in Summerville, and on Highway 17 North in Mt. Pleasant.
