Hooters should be commended for their charity … but not through a Catholic church sponsored fundraiser.

Hooters was one of 16 local restaurants that had signed up to participate in a series of “Dine and Donate” events with St. Patrick Center. Under the arrangement, the restaurants agree to donate a portion of the proceeds on a designated night to the charity.

Peach said the Hooters event would have raised an estimated $1,000 for St. Patrick. She said the charity will hold other events to make up for the lost proceeds.

“Another thing that happened is we have donations coming in because of it (the cancellation),” she said.

“One guy emailed us and said he was eating lunch at his deck and writing a check for $100 to make up the difference for 20 people who don’t have to go to Hooters.”
