About Hornpipes For Hooters
Hornpipes for Hooters Irish Dance Against Breast Cancer was years in the making. In 2016, maybe the year before, I don’t recall exactly, it was coming to be October and all the Breast Cancer Awareness fundraisers started. You know, the ones with the names that use alternate terms for breasts in the title. Almost immediately, I thought ‘we should do something with Hornpipes for Hooters’, but I couldn’t figure out what. That play on words grew, and I added ‘Trebles for Tatas’ and ‘Jigs for Jugs’ but I still could not think what to do.
My family has been impacted by breast cancer, and I wanted to try to not let another year slip by, so in 2017, I had an idea. How about I make an ‘Irish Dance Against Breast Cancer’ shirt? I could put the slogans on the shirt, sell the shirts, and give most of the profit to an organization researching cures for breast cancer. And here we are.
Items start at $18.00. Sorry, there are upsize charges for 2X and above (it’s the t-shirt vendor, not me, really).
I would like to keep this a yearly event and do a similar t-shirt each year, giving profit to breast cancer research.
