Community center receives $10,000 from Hooters

The arrival of Hooters Restaurant and Owl Club Casino brought more than cleavage to Spokane Valley.

Last week the restaurant – known for its busty, scantily clad waitresses – presented the Spokane Valley Community Center with a check for $10,000.

Money was raised during the casino’s VIP party in early July. The invitation-only event kicked off the opening of the business, 16208 E. Indiana Ave.

“Hooters is really big on involving themselves in the community,” said Mike Saczawa, assistant general manager of the Hooters.

The restaurant, owned by California-based HootWinc, LLC, is among 350 individual stores worldwide that are owned by multiple franchises.

The casino offers an off-hours menu with breakfast items and appetizers. “People think that Hooters is just chicken wings and beer but we serve oysters on the half-shell,” Saczawa said.

Hooters restaurant is open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The casino has card tables with Spanish 21 and other games and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m.
