Free pancakes benefit children with life-threatening illnesses

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Perkins Free Pancake Day returns for the fourth year in a row on Thursday, September 24, 2015.

On Wednesday, Harry Graebe, General Manager of the Perkins located on Damon Road stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the free event.

Guests young and old are invited to enjoy a free short stack of Perkins famous, made- from-scratch buttermilk pancakes at any participating Perkins Restaurant & Bakery.  All the company asks is that guests consider “paying it forward” with a donation to Give Kids The World, a non-profit resort in Central Florida that creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

Since 1989, Perkins has raised over $20 million dollars for Give Kids The World through a variety of fundraising efforts and the generosity of the company’s employees, franchisees and vendors.

All dollars raised by Perkins Restaurants & Bakery, go directly towards the operation of the Village’s Gingerbread House, a delightfully whimsical restaurant opened by Perkins Restaurant and Bakery in 1990, where 200,000 breakfasts and dinners are served annually to Give Kids the World guests.
