On Monday, March 3, pancake lovers can drive through, eat their fill of short-stack pancakes and make a donation to support sick and injured children at UC Davis Children's Hospital, in recognition of the International House of Pancakes' (IHOP) National Pancake Day.
The pancake drive-through event will be held off the circular driveway at the front of UC Davis Medical Center, near the intersection of X and 45th Streets from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Children's hospital patients will be invited to visit the location and receive a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.
The event is being held to promote National Pancake Day on March 4, an annual fundraising partnership with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). Now in its ninth year, Pancake Day encourages IHOP patrons to donate what they would have paid for a short stack of buttermilk pancakes to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Proceeds from Pancake Day are anticipated to raise $3 million nationwide for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. All proceeds from the Sacramento event will benefit UC Davis Children's Hospital, Sacramento's Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Last year, Sacramento Pancake Day sales netted nearly $1,500, and other IHOP partnerships raised a total $71,104 for UC Davis Children's Hospital.
