October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Hooters once again is making major efforts with their #GiveAHoot campaign in the fight against breast cancer.
Hooters has raised nearly $4 million over the years to support breast cancer research, much of it through a grant in the name of one of the original Hooters Girls, Kelly Jo Dowd, to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Kelly Jo valiantly battled breast cancer for five years before succumbing in 2007.
They are once again asking guests to #GiveAHoot in the fight during its month-long October fundraising campaign. After a record-setting fundraising campaign in 2015, raising more than $811,000, Hooters Girls are setting the bar even higher with a goal of $1 million this year.
Every Hooters location across the U.S. and throughout Atlanta will support the #GiveAHoot campaign during October through several fundraising programs that invite guests to:
1. Starting Oct. 1, snag the 2017 HOOTERS CALENDAR, with $1 from each calendar sold benefiting the campaign
2. Grab a PINK BRACELET with a donation and write-in the name of someone you support
3. Enjoy one of several PINK DRINKS created to raise awareness and funds
4. PINK UP your check when you visit Hooters. Add a cash or credit card donation to your check.
5. SPREAD THE WORD through social channels, use the hashtag #GiveAHoot to share photos and messages of support
Hooters of Kennesaw’s, Caitlyn Efel, the fourth runner in this year’s Miss Hooters International Pageant, says the passion for finding a cure for breast cancer permeates the Hooters culture.
“We are all very passionate about the cause. A lot of our merchandise helps support breast cancer research and customers come in asking about it. Last year I got second place, and nobody from Georgia had placed that high before. So the local community got behind me and the effort.”
Stop into your local Hooters for some great wings, cold drinks and help Hooter raise money for breast cancer research. @GiveAHoot
