Officers do time for tips

April 13, 2010

Order-up! Issaquah’s police officers will serve up burgers, shakes and fries at the annual Tip-A-Cop event from noon to 8 p.m. April 17 at Issaquah’s Red Robin restaurant, 1085 Lake Drive.

All of the tip money earned by the officers’ service goes directly to Special Olympics Washington. Special Olympics provides year-round sporting activities, including swimming, basketball, track and field for children and adults with special needs.

Local police agencies will also bring several law enforcement vehicles to the event and volunteers will be on hand to take photos for donations.

If having a police officer for your waiter isn’t enough, check out the crowd of motorcycles arriving at Red Robin at 2 p.m. Police officers are leading a motorcycle tour through Issaquah, coordinated with other riders from Costco, Microsoft, Siemens and Spacelabs Healthcare. The ride starts at noon at the Issaquah Microsoft campus, 21295 S.E. 51st St.

Patrons who can’t make the event can donate money to the cause at the restaurant.
