Hooters Helps Fund Cancer Research

Written by Nick Valvano, CEO of The V Foundation and guest blogger

Just returned from the Hooters of America National meeting where I met many of the franchise owners and, oh yes, watched the pageant to select Miss Hooters International 2010.  Sometimes this job has its moments!

Hooters of America not only presented The V Foundation with a $250,000 check, which is phenomenal in itself, but they also made a commitment to raise another $1 million dollars.  This will fund a breast cancer research grant in honor of Kelly Jo Dowd, a former Hooters server and manager who, a few years ago, lost her courageous battle with breast cancer.
