LOS ANGELES –
On the heels of his well-publicized “Pancakegate” incident, Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner
is inviting Kings fans to join him for an IHOP® pancake breakfast benefitting the Kings Care Foundation.
“Pancakes with Penner” will give 75 lucky fans and a guest the opportunity to join him for a buffet breakfast complete with pancakes, bacon and eggs, and a glass of orange juice or IHOP’s Never Empty Coffee Pot® at the Westchester IHOP, located at 8600 S. Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles, on Monday, February 13, from 8-10 a.m.
Penner was hit with back spasms as he sat down to enjoy a pancake breakfast at home in early January. The incident was widely publicized and, as a result, the family-friendly restaurant chain stepped up and agreed to host “Pancakes with Penner” to benefit the Kings Care Foundation.
“We are happy to support Dustin Penner
and the Kings Care Foundation with ‘Pancakes for Penner,’” said Natalia Franco, IHOP’s senior vice president, marketing. “The Kings are incredibly involved in the community and their efforts help a lot of meaningful organizations in the Los Angeles area. All of us at IHOP are also devoted to giving back to the communities in which we operate.”
