TERRE HAUTE -- For the eighth straight year, IHOP restaurants nationwide will offer guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Crisis Pregnancy Centers and other local charities.
The event this year will take place Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 7 a.m.-10 p.m.
The nearest IHOP restaurant is located at 2901 S. 3rd St., Terre Haute.
For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Crisis Pregnancy Centers.
IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $13 million

In 2012, IHOP served four million free pancakes on National Pancake Day and donated more than $3 million to children's charities.
All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day in 2012 would have created a stack nearly 16 miles high.
Since the inception of National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million and given away more than 14 million pancakes to support charities in communities.
