Have you tipped a cop lately?

Residents will get their chance on Thursday, April 17 from 4-9 p.m., when Redmond Police officers will volunteer their time as “celebrity waiters” as part of the Tip-A-Cop fundraising efforts at the Claim Jumper Restaurant at the Redmond Town Center.

The money raised will benefit Special Olympics.

Redmond Police officers raised $8,000 for the cause on Saturday as “celebrity waiters” at the Red Robin restuarants in the Redmond Town Center and Overlake.

In addition to serving meals, the officers will get creative when it comes to making your stay an enjoyable one.

The event will include giveaways for youngsters. In addition, K-9 units, mobile command centers and DARE vehicles will be on hand.
