LETR Mark Pennsylvania Color  Law Enforcement Torch Run Event

The Red Robin “Tip-A-Cop” is an official Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign fundraising event.  Law enforcement officers and department personnel volunteer their time as “Celebrity Waiters” to collect tips at Red Robin Restaurants to support Special Olympics Pennsylvania. 

On October 14th and 21st, members of law enforcement and Special Olympics athletes visited a total of 4 participating Red Robin Restaurants for a lunch (11 a.m. - 2 p.m.) and a dinner (5 p.m. - 9 p.m.) shift.  100% of “special tips” were donated to support Special Olympics PA.   #TipACop
