On April 3, Hooters locations in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana will donate 100 percent of their fried pickles sales to benefit the Southeastern Indiana Storm Victims and Moscow, Ohio Storm Victims organizations, both dedicated to supporting tornado related relief.
Hooters Community Endowment Fund will match up to $2,000 raised to support the cause.
Fried pickles are the No. 1 selling appetizer on the Hooters menu.
All day Tuesday, April 3, the following 20 Hooters restaurants will be participating in the effort: Hooters of Louisville (three locations), Clarksville, Jeffersonville, Evansville, Indianapolis (four locations), Lafayette, Merrillville, Schererville, Ft. Wayne, Florence, Newport, Springdale, Dayton, Toledo, and Columbus.
"The devastation from the tornados has been tragic and we are here to support the communities that have been affected," says Brooke Richards, director of marketing for Hooters franchisee, R.M.D. Corp. "Charity is always a huge focus for Hooters, especially during times like this, when our hometowns, and our neighbors, need our help."
