National Pancake Day

Thank you to all of our loyal fans and customers who came out on National Pancake Day and supported Children’s Miracle Network.  We gave away over 5000 pancakes for this event. 

We were supported with Radio on site from WPLJ, WFAN, WRAT.  They were at the Keyport and Neptune IHOP’s giving away prizes and entertained guests.  Buddy “the Cake Boss” donated a beautifully decorated cake.  The cake was cut up and sold to guests and the money was donated to Children’s Miracle Network.
