CORPUS CHRISTI– Police officers and Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) members from Corpus Christi and Victoria will trade in their handcuffs for serving aprons at the annual Tip-A-Cop event, held at two Texas Roadhouse locations in the South Texas area (listed below) on Thursday, July 21. From 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., officers will serve tables and collect tip money from patrons, which all will be donated to Special Olympics Texas at the end of the dinner shift. All confirmed participating restaurants are subject to cancellation without notice.

The public is urged to dine at one of the two Texas Roadhouse locations and ‘Tip A Cop’ for his/her dedicated effort to support SOTX athletes. All tips will go toward providing SOTX programming for more than 1,800 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the South Texas area.
