IHOP Free Pancake Day – Flip it Forward for Kids® is Almost Here!

Get FREE Pancakes at IHOP® Restaurants on March 12 while Helping Raise Funds for TMC for Children

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. IHOP® Restaurant will host its 14th annual IHOP Free Pancake Day – Flip It Forward for Kids event. IHOP restaurants across America will serve guests a FREE short stack of its world-famous buttermilk pancakes while collecting donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Help make a difference in a child’s life.

Visit your local IHOP on March 12, join in the celebration, leave a donation of any size on-check or in-restaurant for Children’s Miracle Network, and tell family and friends about IHOP Free Pancake Day! All of the funds raised in Tucson during the IHOP Free Pancake Day campaign go toward improving the lives of children being treated at TMC for Children.

To kick off fundraising efforts early, guests visiting any IHOP restaurant in between January 30 and March 12, 2019, can help reach IHOP’s fundraising goal of $4 million by purchasing a “CMN Balloon Icon” wall tag to publicly pledge support or donate on check. Guests who purchase a $5 wall tag will receive a coupon for $5 off of a $10 purchase for their next visit at IHOP.

There is a limit of one free short stack per guest, and the offer is valid at participating restaurants for dine-in only while supplies last, and is not valid with any other offer, special, coupon or discount.

Tell your friends and family about IHOP Free Pancake Day and how they can help Flip It Forward For Kids. If you can’t make it to Free Pancake Day, but you still want to help save local sick kids? Check out the different ways to give here. Or you can donate now!

Also, on February 25, IHOP named six-year-old Brody Simoncini as its 2019 Kid Chef .  Chef Brody’s OREO® Oh My Goodness Pancake Stack will be sold in restaurants through April 14. One dollar of every sale of the OREO® Oh My Goodness Pancake Stack will go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Read his story here.

Remember… it’s all for the kids!
