The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office will again be raising money for the Special Olympics at Applebee’s on Wednesday April 8th as part of the Tip-a-Cop program. The mission of Tip-A-Cop is to raise money for Special Olympics in support of Special Olympic Athletes. Law enforcement personnel trade-in their badges for aprons and partner with Special Olympians to assist on waiting tables, bussing tables, seating families, and serving food to diners. Each table is provided with a donation envelope and request to donate money in support of our wonderful athletes.

Members of the sheriff’s office and their Special Olympian partners will be serving lunch between 11 AM to 2 PM and dinner from 5 PM to 8 PM. Please stop by and enjoy a good meal and help us raise money for local athletes. The money targets year round training in preparation for up to as many as 19 different events.

Lt. Tom Murdoch
