(WXIA) -- IHOP will once again participate in the National Pancake Day promotion on Tuesday, Mar. 4.
Customers who visit any IHOP location on National Pancake Day will be treated to a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. In exchange, the restaurant chain encourages diners to leave a donation for a number of charities, namely the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Beginning this Saturday, Feb. 1, IHOP will collect donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Customers can buy paper balloons that cost either $1 or $5. The balloons will hang in IHOP restaurants through National Pancake Day.
Anyone who purchases a $5 balloon will receive a $5 IHOP coupon to use on a future visit.
