National Pancake Day more than just about pancakes

News 18 This Morning National Pancake Day Interview

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Tuesday is National Pancake Day. Anyone can get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes from IHOP from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

But the best part? All donations given today will go toward Riley Hospital for Children.

The tradition is in its ninth year. Organizers ask that patrons make a voluntary donation that will be given to Riley Hospital. They hope to raise three million dollars this year.

Check out the video to see IHOP General Manager Sheena Schnepp and Riley Lafayette Leadership Committee Chair Grayce Lechtenberg go into more detail about the day. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
