Pancake day celebration benefits Children's Miracle Network

Pancake day celebration benefits Children's Miracle Network

It's  National Pancake Day!  IHOP restaurants across the country are offering a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes with a donation to Children's Miracle Network.

Newsline 9 stopped by the IHOP in Rib Mountain and found many customers getting their fill of flapjacks.

"I have been coming here for 4 or 5 years and I like giving to the cause. My son is autistic and CMN helps with many different health issues," said Brad Ludwig of Weston.

The director of Children's Miracle Network-North Central Wisconsin says she and members of her staff plan on checking out the event at IHOP.

"We are going to stop by and help out in the Rib Mountain store and Plover. This is such a great effort and all of the money raised stays her in our area to help sick and injured children and their families," said Patti Shafto-Carlson.

Newsline 9 partners with CMN for the annual telethon.

This year we will feature 5 children from throughout the area.
