Dough-nate to Special Olympics Hawaii’s 30th Annual Tip a Cop Fundraiser

There’s a new server in town! Volunteer, off-duty law enforcement from around Oahu will be trading in their badges to serve YOU during Special Olympics Hawaii’s 30th Annual Tip a Cop Fundraiser. The event takes place at all seven California Pizza Kitchen locations on Friday, March 13, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, March 14, and Sunday, March 15, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The annual fundraiser will raise awareness and collect donations for Special Olympics Hawaii’s athletes and programs.

Honolulu Police Chief and Special Olympics Hawaii Board Member Chief Susan Ballard will put on an apron at the Kahala Mall California Pizza Kitchen on Friday, March 13 during dinner.

“This year Tip a Cop celebrates three decades bringing together the community and local law enforcement through delicious food,” said Nancy Bottelo, president and CEO of Special Olympics Hawaii. “We are excited and grateful to be partnering with California Pizza Kitchen again this year and hope that supporters will come out to enjoy their favorite pizza and know that their dough-nations go towards providing year-round sports and health services for our athletes and promoting a more inclusive community.”

During the event, law enforcement from Honolulu Police Department, Department of the Prosecuting Attorney, Department of Public Safety, Sheriff Division, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service, U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Probation Office 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 $340,409 for Special Olympics Hawaii.

Special Olympics Hawaii provides year-round sports programs and health opportunities for individuals 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.
