To celebrate National Pancake Day IHop - International House of Pancakes and the Children's Miracle Network are celebrating the 7th annual National Pancake Day today until 10:00 p.m.

All IHOP diners are offered a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. In return, they are hoping/asking each diner to donate the cost of the pancakes to the Children's Miracle Network. All donations received in Grand Rapids will go to the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.

IHOP is hoping to raise $2.7 million for charity this year bringing the seven year total to over $10 million in seven years of national Pancake Day.  Happy National Pancake Day!
