FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 6, 2012 - During the month of February, Chicago area Hooters Restaurants will again donate a portion of their Nearly World Famous Chicken Wings sales to the Wings for the Children program benefitting Holy Family School's Tuition Assistance Fund.  

Every Tuesday in February, Hooters Restaurants throughout the area will donate one-third of all guests’ chicken wing purchases to fund school tuition for underprivileged children in the community.
