[ARCHIVED] Tip a Cop for Special Olympics at Texas Roadhouse May 21

Who: Special Olympics Oregon (SOOR), Eugene and Springfield Police, and Texas Roadhouse

What: Local law enforcement will trade in their patrol cars for aprons at Texas Roadhouse in Eugene as part of the national Tip-A-Cop event benefitting Special Olympics. Law enforcement across the U.S. will be collecting tips and helping serve restaurant guests to benefit Special Olympics programming.

When: Saturday, May 21, 2016, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Where: Texas Roadhouse Bar at Valley River Center, 1060 Valley River Way. We encourage Eugene/Springfield media to visit the local Texas Roadhouse for interviews and photos with local law enforcement and Special Olympics athletes and representatives.

Why: Supporting local and national causes, like Special Olympics, that promote the health and welfare of families and citizens in local communities is an important part of the Texas Roadhouse culture.

Tip-A-Cop is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) campaign. LETR, which includes an international series of relay runs and special events like Tip-A-Cop, is presented by more than 144,000 law enforcement officers worldwide to help raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics. LETR is the largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics through which funds raised go directly to local programs in states or countries where the funds are generated.
