Tip-A-Cop is an official Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraising event.
Law enforcement officers and department personnel volunteer their time as “Celebrity Waiters” to collect tips at Red Robin Restaurants to support Special Olympics of Southern California.
The national goal of the 2012 Red Robin “Tip-A-Cop” event is to raise more than $850,000 from all participating national programs to benefit Special Olympics athletes.
Proceeds raised from Saturday’s event go to the Antelope Valley chapter of Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC), which provides year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
By participating in sports, physical fitness and healthcare education programs, Special Olympics athletes increase self-confidence and social skills, improve physical and motor skills, and have better success in leading more productive and independent lives.
