Hot Cakes Do Kids Good

Feel good and do good by eating free buttermilk pancakes on tomorrow, Feb. 23, from 7am to 10pm, as IHOP restaurants around the nation celebrate its famed annual tradition: National Pancake Day. The event started in 2006, but the pancake tradition goes back to Fat Tuesday, when the English prepared for Lent by eating all the eggs, milk and butter. Since then, the IHOP event has raised more than $3.25 million and given more than 6.1 million free pancakes. If compiled into one stack, the pancakes served would be more than 20 miles high! 

This is how it works: with each free short stack of pancakes served, guests can make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network and, specifically, Shand’s Children’s Hospital at the University of Florida. Almost $1.5 million was raised in donations last year and IHOP hopes to raise $1.75 million this year. 

IHOP is located on SW 13th Street, and be sure show up early to this very popular Gainesville event. Visit for more.
