Tip-A-Cop event to raise money for Special Olympics

By April 20, 2011

Woodland police will be serving up food instead of tickets and warrants Thursday at a “Tip-A-Cop” fund-raiser for Special Olympics of Northern California.

Officers and other Woodland Police Department representatives will volunteer their time to assist restaurant staff at Applebee’s, 1790 E. Main St., from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 5 to 8 p.m.

The event is part of a long-standing relationship between Special Olympics and law-enforcement agencies. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is a year-round fundraising campaign, which culminates with the carrying of the Flame of Hope to Special Olympics competitions.

Money is raised through a variety of activities, including several Tip-A-Cop events at various local restaurants and private donations by businesses and individuals.
