Local Law Enforcement Raise Dough-nations for 29th Annual Tip a Cop

Volunteer, off-duty law enforcement personnel from around Oahu will get a taste of what it’s like to serve at a popular restaurant during the 29th Annual Tip a Cop fundraiser. The annual event takes place at all Oahu California Pizza Kitchen locations. The fundraiser aims to raise awareness and collect tips (or donations) for Special Olympics Hawaii athletes and programs. The event will take place during the following dates and times:
  • Friday, October 18, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.,
  • Saturday, October 19, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Sunday, October 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to partner with such a beloved and popular restaurant like California Pizza Kitchen here in Hawaii, and for their generosity and commitment to giving back to the community,” said Nancy Bottelo, president and CEO of Special Olympics Hawaii. “Seeing the connection with families and our law enforcement community through delicious food and great service is what makes Tip a Cop a success year after year.”

During the event, law enforcement personnel from the Honolulu Police Department, Department of the Prosecuting Attorney, Department of Public Safety, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Probations Office District of Hawaii will put their serving skills to the test by volunteering to clear tables, run food and assist servers in efforts to raise tips for Special Olympics Hawaii’s programs. Since its inception, Tip a Cop has raised $342,557 for Special Olympics Hawaii.

Special Olympics Hawaii provides year-round sports programs and training for athletes with intellectual disabilities, free of charge. Since 1968, Special Olympics has been changing attitudes about the talents of people with intellectual disabilities and raising awareness to build an inclusive and unified community.
