Reno Police Officers support local area Special Olympics through "Tip-A-Cop" program

Post Date:04/22/2014 4:36 PM

The annual "Tip-A-Cop" program at Applebee's is a unique way for Reno Police Officers and the restaurant employees to join together to raise donations for Special Olympics.  Reno Police Officers will be serving customers during this charitable event by waiting tables during lunch hours from 11:00 a.m.-3 p.m., and dinner service from 5-9 p.m. at the Kietzke Lane Applebee's.

During the course of the customer's meal, the Officers will partner with the regular restaurant staff to visit with the customers, talk about Special Olympics and solicit tax deductible "tips" as donations for the program.  The donations for Special Olympics through "Tip-A-Cop" are not meant to replace the normal gratuities for the hardworking restaurant servers who will team with the Reno Officers during the lunch and dinner service.

“Tip-A-Cop” is one of the main fund raising programs for the Special Olympics that provides them money to help fund year-round sports training and athletic competition for people with intellectual disabilities.   The money raised through the program also supports a number of other initiatives that include athlete-leadership programs, the Global Athlete Congress, family leadership and support, the Healthy Athletes program, research, schools and youth, the Special Olympics World Games and other programs.  Law Enforcement Officers throughout the State of Nevada will also be participating at other restaurants in support of the Special Olympics..  

Please come by the Kietzke Lane Applebee’s to support your communities Law Enforcement Officers as they support the communities local Special Olympic athletes.
