[ISP] ISP Teams Up with Special Olympics
Start Date: 4/1/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/1/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS –Indiana State Police along with county and local law enforcement officers and Special Olympics Indiana team up with six Texas Roadhouse restaurants for the very first time to benefit over 11,000 Hoosier athletes with intellectual disabilities. Tip-A-Cop will take place between 4p.m. and 10p.m., from April 7 to 10, 2014. The event, part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR), will start at the Richmond and Columbus Texas Roadhouse branches, before visiting Greenwood, Bloomington and Terre Haute, culminating in a final evening at Southport (Indianapolis).

Law enforcement officers will trade badges for aprons as they collect tips from Texas Roadhouse customers; 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.

As an LETR signature fundraising event, Tip-A-Cop invites Hoosier residents to attend one of the selected Texas Roadhouse 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 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 4p.m.-10p.m. at the following Texas Roadhouse branch locations:

Monday, April 7-Columbus and Richmond
Tuesday, April 8-Greenwood
Wednesday, April 9-Terre Haute and Bloomington
Thursday, April 10-Southport (Indianapolis)
