Stacks of people take advantage of National Pancake Day at Lufkin's IHOP

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Today was National Pancake Day, and residents were able to get free pancakes and give to a good cause.

IHOP and the Shriners have teamed up to raise money for the Children's Miracle Hospital Network. They were asking for donations instead of making you paying for the pay for the pancakes.

"We have raised over$10 million with IHOP helping us with us and it is tremendous help. We love IHOP helping us because they stay behind us and stay with us," said Shriner's Potentate Joe Youngblood.

This year the group has a goal of $3 million dollars this year.
