LAREDO, TX – The Webb County Sheriff’s Department and Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) members in the Laredo area will trade in their handcuffs for serving aprons at the annual Tip A Cop Night, a fundraiser for Special Olympics Texas (SOTX), being held at Texas Roadhouse (5722 San Bernardo Ave.) in Laredo on Thursday, July 20. From 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., officers will serve tables and collect tips, which be turned in as donations to Special Olympics Texas at the end of the dinner shift.
The public 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 2,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the Laredo area.
This event operates under the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), which is SOTX’s largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. Through efforts like Tip A Cop Night, Texas LETR raised over $1.4 million in 2016 to support more than 58,300 SOTX athletes across the state.
