It is a day that breakfast lovers wait for all year. 

Free stacks of pancakes at IHOP were given out in exchange for a donation to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Those include Golisano Children's Hospital here in Rochester. 

"It started off at 7 a.m. We had guests calling yesterday really excited about this; and also they really are excited to donate. The community is and the hospital as well," IHOP manager Heather Zimmer said.

IHOP's goal is to raise $16 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. IHOP will serve the pancakes until 10 p.m.
