Hooters proudly supports breast cancer research through our partnership with the V Foundation for Cancer Research, a leading organization funding groundbreaking research. In addition, we have established the Kelly Jo Dowd Breast Cancer Research Fund, named in honor of a late Hooters alumna and cancer warrior, to further drive our commitment to this crucial cause.
Breast cancer remains a significant health concern, affecting the lives of millions of women worldwide. According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 300,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are projected to be diagnosed in women in 2023, and tragically, over 40,000 cases are expected to result in fatalities. These statistics highlight the urgency of taking action and supporting breast cancer research to find more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
We are proud to share that in 2020, with the help of our dedicated Hooters Girls™ and loyal customers, we raised an astounding $710,000 in the fight against breast cancer.
