Tip-a-Cop event to raise money for Special Olympics

      RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The Tip-a-Cop event at Famous Dave's on Thursday, Feb. 21 will raise money for the Special Olympics Nevada programs throughout the year.

      Troopers will be paired up with a regular staff member of the restaurant and will work for additional tips during the lunch and dinner hours. As each table of patrons is seated, the trooper will give a brief explanation about the fundraiser and will leave an envelope on the table. Those wishing to make a donation to Special Olympics Nevada will have the opportunity to do so and this tip is in addition to the normal server's entitled gratuity.

      All of the money raised will stay right here in Northern Nevada to offset the training, equipment and other expenses in an effort to allow the athletes to participate in their sporting activity of choice during the year.
