Hooters raising money for breast cancer research on May 30

Hooters Girls from the Hooters restaurant at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will be going to great lengths to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research. Hooters will showcase girls Teeter-Tottering in a 12-hour marathon to raise much needed money for the Kelly Jo Dowd Fund for Breast Cancer Research. Donations for this event have already begun to take place at this Hooters location.
Kelly Jo Dowd was one of the original Hooters Girls, who graced the cover of the 1995 Hooters Calendar and worked her way up the Hooters ranks to manager of the location in Palm Harbor, Florida. In 2002, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately lost her battle with cancer on May 24th, 2007. Her story received national attention when ESPN covered her then 13-year-old daughter, Dakoda Dowd, playing in an LPGA event to fulfill her mother’s wish.
For the fourth consecutive year, Hooters Girls across the country will be raising money for the cause through local fundraising efforts including the sale of pink Hooters Girl uniform cutouts at the restaurants during the entire month of May. A check will be presented to the V Foundation in Miami during the Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant on June 20th to further fund the Kelly Jo Dowd Breast Cancer Research Grant.
The main event is Saturday, May 30, noon at Hooters in Seminole Paradise, Seminole Hard Rock  Hotel & Casino, . For more information, call Chris Torelli, Hooters, at
