Tip-a-Cop Fundraiser a Success!

Yesterday's Tip-a-Cop event, a fundraiser for Special Olympics, raised money and spirits at the Delaveaga Golf Lodge. Off-duty uniformed officers served diners throughout the lunch hour.

Thank you to all that came out to help us raise funds for this important cause! Because of Special Olympics, developmentally disabled athletes and their families are able to enjoy the challenge of training for a sport and then competing against other athletes. It provides an opportunity for the athletes to participate in organized competition and to experience the camaraderie of team and individual sports…all at no cost to them for uniforms, training or transportation. Everybody wins in this endeavor and the parents of the athletes get to see their children display their athletic abilities and smile. Although these experiences may seem simple and everyday to you, they can be magical for a special athlete.
