Preview: ‘Tip A Cop' Fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse Thursday

Members of the Amarillo Police Department will trade in their handcuffs for serving aprons at Texas Roadhouse this Thursday for Tip A Cop Night, the annual statewide fundraiser that supports Special Olympics Texas (SOTX).

From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., officers will serve tables and collect tips. All gratuities collected by the officers will be donated to SOTX at the end of the dinner shift.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to dine at this Texas Roadhouse location and ‘Tip A Cop’ for his/her dedicated effort to support SOTX athletes.

All tips will go toward providing SOTX programming for more than 600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Amarillo and the surrounding Panhandle area.

Through efforts like Tip A Cop Night, Texas Law Enforcement Torch Run raised over $1.4 million in 2016, including $170,000 during last year’s statewide Texas Roadhouse Tip A Cop Night, to support more than 58,300 SOTX athletes across the state.
