Hooters Supports Clearwater Native on Path to Olympics

| Suncoast Post Staff |

Hooters is helping a local Clearwater native Noah Lyons in support of his Olympic Campaign.  The Tampa Bay area Hooters locations contributed $5,000 to the 22 year old. The support will help Noah with expenses such as equipment, travel and housing as he pursues his dream of the 2024 Paris Olympics Games.  Noah sails the Olympic Windsurfer called the IQFoil. 

“When we found out that Noah needed support we wanted to help with his Olympic Campaign since he is a local Clearwater native. We hope our efforts will also assist him to raise awareness and funds,” said HMC Hospitality Group Chief Marketing Officer Denise Williams. Hooters is one of the first local companies to offer assistance.
