It's back for it's 11th year, and it means great tasting pancakes for us,  much needed donations for children.

March 8th, Tuesday, I-Hop restaurants in the Tri-Cities will join  1,668 locations around the country, and offer everyone who stops by between 7am and 7pm a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes, and encourage all who partake to make a donation to help out the Children's Miracle Network.

The network helps some 170 member hospitals around the country, including Southeastern Washington state, who provide around 32 million treatments for children. They range from pediatric care to providing medical equipment for other uses for children, a wide variety of necessary medical procedures.

Last year I-Hop served over 6 million pancakes, and people donated over $3.5 million to these children's charities. They served so many cakes, that stacked on top of each other they would have been 19 MILES high!

So mark it on the calendar, program it into your phone. Stop by the I-Hop at Road 68 in Pasco, or on Canal Drive in Kennewick March 8th between 7am and 7pm, and help out the Children's Miracle Network, and enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes while you make your donation!
