Law Enforcement Officials Become Celebrity Waiters for a Day

Officers from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station participate as "celebrity waiters" to raise money for Special Olympics Southern California.

Law enforcement officers from all over Los Angeles volunteered their time Saturday as "celebrity waiters" at participating Red Robin restaurants to collect tips for a good cause.

The "Tip-a-Cop" program, an official Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign fundraising event, raises money to support Special Olympics Southern California. The national goal of the 2012 event is to raise more than $850,000 from all participating national programs to benefit Special Olympics athletes.

Locally, officers from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station volunteered their services for the lunch and dinner hours at the Calabasas Red Robin.

Proceeds raised from this event go to the Santa Clarita & Tri-Valley Regions of Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC). SOSC provides year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. By participating in sports, physical fitness and healthcare education programs, Special Olympics Southern California athletes increase self-confidence and social skills, improve physical and motor skills and have better success in leading more productive and independent lives.

Suggestions: ADVANCE NOTICE OF THIS EVENT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY HELPFUL, not after the fact. However, perhaps you DID PUBLICIZE THIS EVENT in the 5 things to do in Calabasas, but I RARELY SCROLL DOWN that far ANYMORE. It used to be a TOP FEATURE and widely read. PLEASE PUT IT BACK AT THE BEGINNING OF CALABASAS PATCH AS IT USED TO BE. This event, which I did support should have had an article prior to event day too. This was a good community activity.
