Hooters makes it a ‘Happy Easter’ for Ban Jing Jai children


Hooters Pattaya welcomed 50 children from the local Baan Jing Jai Foundation to the new, talk-of-the town restaurant on Easter Sunday, March 27.  The youngsters were there to enjoy a fun-packed day of egg hunting, face-painting, singing songs, playing games and much more with the Hooters staff while Mike Warde, General Manager of the restaurant, and Jessica Arra, the newly crowned Miss Hooters Pattaya, presented a donation of 142,000 baht to Khun Pieangtar –founder of the Bann Jing Jai organization.

Hooters Asia says it is committed to giving back to society and each of its outlets adopts a local children’s home to support.  As well as the Baan Jing Jai Foundation here in Pattaya, the two Hooters branches in Bangkok will provide assistance to the Camillian Home for Disabled Children and the FFAC (Friends for all Children) charities while Hooters Phuket supports Baan Dek Holland Orphanage.  Every month each restaurant holds special events such as a sponsored hula hoop competition, Hooters Girls & customers dance off, charity auction, charity bike wash etc. to raise funds for charity.  Donations are also accepted for the orange charity wristbands available at Hooters.

Every 3 months the Hooters Pattaya management and staff plan to will visit the Baan Jing Jai home or invite the children to the restaurant for activities and present a donation.  This Easter’s event was the first of 2016’s cheque presentations.  To date in 2016 (Jan-March) all 4 outlets have raised just over 400,000 baht for worthy causes.

Face painting was a fun activity for the children and the Hooters Girls.

Animal balloons always go down a treat at a children’s party.

Enjoying a great day out at Hooters Pattaya.
