He was enjoying a Hooters Chicken Strip Cheese sandwich at his local Hooters of Houma when he was notified that he was the winner of the grand prize valued at nearly $16,000.
“My local Hooters of Houma is one of my favorite places to eat and catch a game because I know I’m guaranteed a fun visit, every time,” said Boudreaux, HootClub member and loyal Hooters fan. “I thought HootClub was great to track my visits and earn rewards—but I’d never imagined that I would win such an awesome grand prize!
