Police officers and Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) members from all around the Dallas-Fort Worth area will trade in their handcuffs for serving aprons at the annual Tip A Cop Night held at several Texas Roadhouse locations in the area (listed below) on Thursday, July 21.
During the 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. dinner shift, officers will serve tables and collect tips, which will be turned in as donations to Special Olympics Texas at the end of the dinner shift. Additional locations may be announced later. All confirmed participating restaurants are subject to cancellation without notice.
The public is urged to dine at one of the several Texas Roadhouse locations and ‘Tip A Cop’ for his/her dedicated effort to support SOTX athletes. All tips will go toward providing SOTX programming for more than 10,700 athletes with intellectual disabilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
