Troopers and Special Olympics Indiana Prepare for Red Robin Tip-A-Cop Day

Indiana-State-Police-logoIndiana State Police Troopers and Special Olympics Indiana team up with ten Red Robin restaurants to benefit more than 11,000 Hoosier athletes with intellectual disabilities. Tip-A-Cop will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Saturday October 18, 2014

Law enforcement officers, joined by Special Olympics athletes, will trade badges for aprons as they collect tip donations at Red Robin locations. All money donated goes directly to Special Olympics Indiana. The head of the state police, Superintendent Doug Carter, said, “The Indiana State Police, and law enforcement in general, have a bond with Special Olympics and are pleased to be part of the tip-a-cop fundraising event.” This year continues to build the strong law enforcement Tip-A-Cop tradition benefitting Special Olympics Indiana.

“The continued and growing support of the Indiana State Police has been remarkable,” Special Olympics Indiana CEO Mike Furnish said. “Through their work with this event, Red Robin has also become a fantastic partner.”

As an LETR signature fundraising event, Tip-A-Cop invites the public to attend one of the selected Red Robin locations, without the need of a promotional flyer, and chose from the full menu. Customers are encouraged to donate gratuities, a “Special tip”, to law enforcement “celebrity waiters;” in doing so they will help to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Indiana and the services the organization provides to adults and children with intellectual disabilities. Throughout its history, the Tip-A-Cop fundraising event, with various restaurant partners, has generated over $2.5 million for Special Olympics.

Tip-A-Cop will take place from 11 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at all ten Indiana Red Robin restaurant locations.
