Feeling peckish? Or better yet, pancakish? Could be because it's IHOP National Pancake Day. Teresa Scanlan, aka Miss America, is helping the nearly 1,500 IHOP restaurants in the US promote the annual giveaway: a free "short stack" of three buttermilk pancakes.
In return, the chain is suggesting that customers make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, as its goal is to raise $2.3 million today. Since launching the yearly marketing promotion in 2006, IHOP has raised $5.4 million for the charity.
