If you're a fan of eating pancakes and helping charity at the same time, then you're in luck.

Tomorrow, IHOP is hosting its eighth annual National Pancake Day, with the hopes of raising $3 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, including Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare, in Utica.

Starting at 7 in the morning, customers may receive a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes and also make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network. The event will be held all day, until 10 p.m.

Last year's event raised more than $3 million for children's charities, with more than 4 million free pancakes served.
