National Pancake Day
March 3rd, 2015 from 7am-10pm
IHOP locations in Alabama
BIRMINGHAM- IHOP will again serve free pancakes to benefit Children’s of Alabama in celebration of National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at participating restaurants across the state.
From 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. that day, IHOP customers can enjoy a free short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes and, in turn, will be asked to make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) to celebrate this “Decade of Giving.” Since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has raised approximately $13 million to provide life-saving treatment, programs and medical equipment for pediatric patients across the country. One hundred percent of the funds donated at participating Alabama IHOP locations will be donated to Children’s of Alabama.
Miracle Balloons, which include IHOP coupons, will be sold for $1 and $5 each, personalized and displayed at participating IHOP restaurants during February, offering guests another way to show their support of CMNH and contribute to the National Pancake Day fundraising effort. Guests who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 discount coupon that can be used during their next dining visit.
Pancake Day is a tradition that dates back several centuries to when the English prepared 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 which falls on Shrove Tuesday on the Christian calendar.
"IHOP is thrilled to bring families and communities together in support of the efforts of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities on National Pancake Day," said Des Hague, IHOP's president. "We want to thank our guests who helped us raise nearly $3 million to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities last year, and we ask them to join us again to surpass our fundraising goal of $3.5 million for 2015.”
Participating IHOP restaurants in Alabama include:
· Athens (16211 Athens Limestone Blvd.)
· Birmingham (5243 Highway 280) and (7748 Crestwood Blvd.)
