BRICK – The International House of Pancakes on Route 88 in Brick held their 10th Annual National Pancake Day fundraiser on March 8th in support of Children’s Miracle Network, specifically Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation.
Mayor John Ducey and hundreds of Brick residents were on hand as IHOP owner Lou Maschi served 1,525 short stacks (that’s 4,575 pancakes!) in exchange for donations to the hospital.
Volunteers Kaitlin Clutter, Aaron & Mackenzie Wight, Gianna Trotter, Bryce Patrick, Dylan Klink, Taryn Garriques, and Jude Siperstein collected $70,590.94 in donations.
“The efforts of Brick IHOP and the donations of Brick residents truly make me Brick Proud,” said Mayor Ducey. “All of Brick looks forward to this great event every year for a great cause.”
