Free Pancake Day at IHOP to help local kids in need

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- You may want to get up early before work or school Tuesday as IHOP celebrates its free pancake day for the 14th year.

The chain will offer a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes Tuesday, March 12, at all of its restaurants, including here in West Michigan.

Customers are encouraged to make a donation to kids at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for children fighting a life-threatening illness. The money raised will help kids and their families pay for medical care.

"We've been doing it for so long, iHop typically averages between $2.5 to $3 million dollars a year," said Walid Jamal, iHop franchise operator.

The free pancake frenzy runs Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
