The Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State Police along with county and local law enforcement officers and Special Olympics Indiana team up with six Texas Roadhouse restaurants to benefit more than 11,000 Hoosier athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Tip-A-Cop will take place from 4 to 10 p.m., Monday to Thursday. The event, part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, will start at the Richmond and Columbus Texas Roadhouse branches, before visiting Greenwood, Bloomington and Terre Haute, culminating in a final evening at Southport (Indianapolis).

Law enforcement officers will collect tips from Texas Roadhouse customers; all money donated goes directly to Special Olympics Indiana.

Tip-A-Cop invites Hoosier residents to attend one of the selected Texas Roadhouse locations, without the need of a promotional flyer, and choose from the full menu. Customers are encouraged to donate gratuities to law enforcement “celebrity waiters.” In doing so, patrons will help to raise funds and awareness for adults and children with intellectual disabilities. The Tip-A-Cop fundraising event has generated more than $2.5 million for Special Olympics.

Tip-A-Cop will take place Wednesday at the Terre Haute Texas Roadhouse.
