IHOP will be serving free pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday to celebrate National Pancake Day and raise money for charity.
The restaurant chain hopes to raise $2.3 million, for a total of $7.5 million in six years for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities through donations from patrons.
Last year, IHOP served 4 million free pancakes and more than $2.1 million was donated to charities, according to a news release. There is a limit of one free short stack of pancakes per guest.
