More than 40 Hooters Girls from across 15 Hooters locations in Southern California will compete for a spot in the 18th annual Miss Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant that takes place in Las Vegas on July 23.

"The swimsuit final pageant is one of the largest events we host regionally," said Rick Leukert, chief executive officer and operating partner, HootWinc, LLC.
