A middle school football coach lost his job over a planned party at Hooters. Now, the restaurant is stepping up.
Hooters sent the following statement to Deadspin:
Hooters of America Statement:
"The Corbett Middle School football players, coaches and their families have earned the right to celebrate a successful, hard-fought season. This Saturday, Nov. 9, Hooters is picking up the tab for an awesome end-of-season football party to honor the team's gridiron success. To top it all off, Hooters will donate $1,000 along with 20 percent of Saturday's Jantzen Beach location sales to Corbett Youth Football so that the entire community can join in celebrating the team's winning season."
Jantzen Beach is in Portland, Oregon. So, buy your plane ticket now if you want to support this decision. The party will not be associated with the school, but the players will benefit.
