Hooters Saves The Children

By Alexander Russo — February 08, 2007 1 min read

Pretty much every company out there has some do-gooder initiative going on these days, whether it’s VH1’s “Save The Music” campaign or Wal-Mart’s “We Really Care” (I made that one up). But who knew that Hooters had one, too? Thanks to eagle-eyed Howie Schaffer from the PEN Newsblast, now we do:

“Hooters Restaurants “Wings for Children” program is underway once again at all Chicago area locations, raising money for the Holy Family Lutheran School through proceeds from the sales of their world famous chicken wings. In 2005, Hooters raised $33,000 for the school. Almost $170,000 total has been raised since the program’s inception in 1995.”
