Wings for the Kids is Back to Give Back!

Hooters in the Community.

Hooters is a neighborhood restaurant and we like to stay active in the communities around our locations. From sponsoring little league teams and celebrating First Responders Day, to building homes with Habitat for Humanity, our staff has always taken great pride in “giving a Hoot.” One of our favorite ways to support our Chicagoland neighbors is our annual Wings for the Kids program.

Since 1992, on Tuesdays in February, Hooters has donated one-third of the proceeds from our World-Famous Chicken Wing sales to the Holy Family School on the west side of Chicago. So far, we’ve been able to raise over $680,000 for the school’s Tuition Assistance Fund!

Holy Family School was established in 1985 to offer a high-quality education for minority children in Chicago’s low-income neighborhoods, providing a learning environment that nurtures intellectual, spiritual, social, emotional and physical growth for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. On average, money donated by Chicagoland Hooters Restaurants enables 8 children to receive a first-class education at Holy Family each year.

Wings for the Kids

Our Wings for the Kids program originated at our very first location – Hooters of Clearwater – which earned us the Patron of Education award from state of Florida. When our brand expanded into Chicagoland, continuing to help kids just made perfect sense – like serving ranch with hot wings.

If you would like to support this incredibly worthy cause, just stop by any Chicagoland location on Tuesdays in February, and be sure to order plenty of wings. It’s the most delicious and rewarding way you can help Chicago’s less fortunate children thrive… by giving them the wings they need to fly!

Official Press Release

On Tuesdays during the month of February, Chicagoland Hooters locations donate one-third of all world-famous chicken wing sales to the Holy Family School’s Tuition Assistance Fund. Since 1992, Hooters has raised nearly half a million dollars for Holy Family through the Wings For Children program. The Holy Family School was established 25 years ago to provide a high-quality education for minority students in Chicago’s low-income neighborhoods.

The results of the program have been impressive, with 87% of the Holy Family alumni enrolling in private and select college-preparatory high schools between 1990 and 2004. Due to the success of Wings for Children, in both 2005 and 2011, the Hooters Restaurants in Illinois were named the state winner of the National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant Neighbor Award, which recognizes outstanding commitment to the community. The money donated by the Wings for Children program enables 8 students to receive a first-class education at Holy Family School each year.

Hooters Restaurants derive a great sense of satisfaction from helping children in low-income neighborhoods enjoy an outstanding academic experience, and is thrilled to provide these kids with the wings they need to fly. See participating Chicagoland locations here.

And remember… kids can’t fly without wings.
