I just saw a TV commercial for IHOP'sNational Pancake Day, which raises money for CMN, with whom Miss America also has a partnership. It's this Tuesday, February 24th from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
If you are a titleholder, ED, parent, or even local contestant, I think you should contact your local IHOPimmediately! See if you can be a celebrity pancake flipper or server; perhaps you could sit in the entry way and sign autographs and explain the charity. Also find out if that restaurant is getting media coverage. If so, contact that paper or station to let them know you will be there too; form a positive relationship so they will include you in this, and future events. If not, send your own press releases and follow-up, in hopes of securing your own coverage.
