FOX19 celebrates National Pancake Day

(FOX19) -

For the ninth consecutive year, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day on Tuesday, March 4.

The event lasts 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and it's part of an effort to raise $3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals programs nationwide.

Tune in at 9:40 a.m. as FOX19's Denise Johnson reports live from the IHOP on Marburg Ave. this morning!

For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to nearly $16 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities.

Last year, IHOP served 4.5 million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2013 and pancake lovers donated nearly $3 million to children's charities.

Fun fact: All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2013 would create a stack nearly 13 miles high!

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
