ALBANY, N.Y., March 2, 2015 — For the 10th consecutive year, Capital District IHOP restaurants will offer guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes onTuesday, March 3, National Pancake Day. This family-friendly tradition raises funds in support of the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, for the care it provides thousands of families annually.

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.  Local families who benefited from the children’s hospital will be on hand to share their stories.
