Pancakes: They’re good for breakfast. Or lunch. Or even dinner.
And today, you can get them for free at your local Perkins.
To celebrate Give Kids the World Pancake Day on Sept. 22, participating restaurants will give you a free short stack of pancakes.
Why the Free Pancakes? (Why Not?!)
What’s the catch? It’s for a good cause.
Perkins asks that today’s guests consider making a donation to Give Kids the World, a nonprofit that invites kids with serious illnesses and their families to enjoy cost-free, weeklong vacations at its resort in central Florida.
Funds raised during today’s event will go toward operations of the resort’s Gingerbread House, a restaurant and bakery serving Give Kids the World guests.
A short stack will typically cost you $3.79 — something to consider if you take advantage of the freebie.
Do You Go to Perkins Often?
While you’re there, you might want to sign up for My Perkins, the restaurant’s rewards program, which offers a 20% off coupon for joining.
Free pancakes now, discounted pancakes later? Sounds good to me.
