Tip-a-Cop turns officers into restaurant servers Saturday to support Special Olympics

Staff writerOctober 9, 2013 

Law enforcement officers will be serving food Saturday at Red Robin restaurants across the state to raise funds for Special Olympics Washington.

They'll be serving from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Special Olympics Washington allows children and adults with intellectual disabilities to train and compete in sports year-round. They participate for free, though it costs $650 to support an athlete for a year.

The Tip-a-Cop event raised $100,000 for the state's 10,000 Special Olympics athletes last year, and has brought in more than $2 million since it started eight years ago.

Diners who give at least $100 will have a chance to win a pair of roundtrip airline tickets.

Red Robin locations participating locally include:

· Lakewood Towne Center (10311 Gravelly Lake Drive SW)

· Auburn Super Mall (1002 Super Mall Way)

· Puyallup (3609 9th Street SW)

· Kent (25207 104th Ave. SE)

· Olympia (600 Cooper Point Rd., SW)

· Federal Way (2233 S. 320th Street)

· Tacoma (3901 S. Steele St.)

· Lacey (1110 Galaxy Drive NE #A

· South Puyallup (16904 Meridian East, Suite 105)
