Miss America to serve CMN for National Pancake Day fundraiser

ATLANTA (WTVM) - Georgia native and reigning Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell will be stopping in Atlanta on Thursday to help IHOP with their fundraiser supporting the Children's Miracle Network.

Cantrell has been a big supporter of CMN, working on a number of events and visiting children's hospitals.

On Thursday, March 3, Cantrell will roll up her sleeves to flip pancakes at the IHOP location in Chamblee, GA, from 9 a.m. to noon, to benefit CMN, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Following her shift on the flapjack station, Cantrell will visit children at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

On National Pancake Day, March 8, all participating dine-in only customers will get a free short stack of IHOP's famous buttermilk pancakes between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and consider donating to CMN with your meal.

"Together with guests like you, we've raised nearly $20 million since 2006 - one free short stack at a time," the diner says on their website. "Now that's the power of pancakes!"
