Hosts Tip-A-Cop Fundraiser for Special Olympics

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - On Wednesday, September 19, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar of Citrus Heights opened its doors to members of local law enforcement for a Tip-A-Cop fundraiser. Members of the Citrus Heights Police Department served as ‘celebrity waiters’ at Applebee’s for the fundraising event, with 100% of their tips donated directly to the Special Olympics, an organization providing year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities or closely related developmental disabilities. The event raised over $1,600 for Special Olympics of Northern California.

Tip-A-Cop is an annual fundraising event organized by The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, where law enforcement officers volunteer their time to raise funds for Special Olympics, the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities. Apple American Group, who own and operate the Applebee’s of Citrus Heights, pledges to assist and support those institutions that enhance the quality of life in the communities it serves.
