Hooters Funds Breast Cancer Research with #SupportOurHooters
Throughout the month of October, Hooters will honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with several opportunities for customers to help fight breast cancer in the #SupportOurHooters campaign.
From October 6 through 12, Hooters will host “Pink Week” with a series of fundraising parties at all U.S. Hooters locations.
The 2015 Hooters Calendar Girls will also tour the country to help raise awareness, make local appearances, and sign autographs for Hooters fans all over the U.S. All month long, Hooters locations will offer ways to support breast cancer research, including donating a portion of proceeds from the sale of the 2015 Hooters Calendar.
“With 17,000 Hooters Girls around the globe and a workforce made up of 70 percent women, no other dining destination is as uniquely qualified to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research,” the company announced in a statement.
“The Support Our Hooters fundraising effort will benefit the Kelly Jo Dowd Breast Cancer Research Fund which was developed in honor of the late Kelly Jo Dowd, one of the original Hooters Girls who graced the cover of the 1995 Hooters Calendar.”
Hooters has also published a “Girl to Girl Checklist” of five early detection reminders to encourage women to stay on top of their breast health.
