Tuesday is National Pancake Day, and it could be a big fundraiser for ill children in our area.

You can get a free short stack of pancakes at IHOP's Henrietta and Irondequoit locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. In return, you're asked to donate to Golisano Children's Hospital.

The pancake donations are part of a nationwide effort. Since it began, the initiative has raised almost $30 million for children's hospitals nationwide.
