National Weatherperson Day meets National Pancake Day


 WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Each year IHOP gives away free panckaes as part of their "National Pancke Day". It's a delicious giveaway, but it's also part of a fundraiser with the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in mind. 

February 5th also marks National Weatherperson Day, so Good Morning Carolina Meteorologist Tim Buckley went along to check out the giveaway and get treated to some free pancakes. Watch the video for the story!

Since the celebration started in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in communities in which it operatures. When guests arrive for their free short stack of pancakes, they're asked to consider leaves a donation for the Children's Miracle Network.

Customers at the Wilmington store were lined up out the door when the Market St. IHOP opened at 7am yesterday.
