June 10, 2011 > 'Tip-A-Cop' Fundraiser
Submitted By Detective Bill Veteran, Fremont PD
Police officers and employees from the Fremont Police Department will be volunteering their time to assist restaurant staff and help raise money for Special Olympics Northern California at a "Tip-A-Cop" fundraiser on Thursday, June 9, from 6 pm - 9 pm, at Applebee's, 43349 Boscell Road, located at the Pacific Commons shopping area.
The law enforcement community, including the Fremont Police Department, has a longstanding relationship with the Special Olympics. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is a year-round worldwide fundraising campaign, which culminates with the carrying of the Special Olympics torch to the Special Olympics Games.
Funds are raised through a variety of activities, including "Tip-A-Cop" events at various local restaurants, and allow Special Olympics athletes to attend local, regional, national, and international competitions. The Northern California Summer Games will be held this year on June 24-26 at the University of California at Davis.
For more information, or to make a donation to the Special Olympics, contact Lieutenant Clarise Lew at (510) 790-6989 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
