WASHINGTON - For the sixth year in a row, IHOP is celebrating National Pancake Day by giving away a short stack of Buttermilk pancakes Tuesday.

Until 10 p.m. Feb. 28, every IHOP across the country will take part.

The annual celebration also serves as a fundraiser for local charities. While the pancakes are free, customers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospital and other local charities.

IHOP has raised nearly $8 million since 2006 for charity through National Pancake Day.

For more information on this special, maple syrup-soaked day, visit IHOP's website.
