Issaquah police officers protect and serve — and on Saturday, the men and women in blue serve meals, too.

For the annual Tip-a-Cop fundraiser, officers from the Issaquah and Snoqualmie police departments plan to serve burgers, fries and more to diners at Red Robin. Tips collected by law enforcement officers benefit Special Olympics Washington.

Tip-a-Cop runs from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the restaurant, 1085 Lake Drive.

Officers and command staff members serve as “celebrity” servers alongside the Red Robin staff. The fundraiser also features a raffle. Prizes include a stay at the Salish Lodge & Spa in Snoqualmie.

For people unable to attend Tip-a-Cop, Red Robin is accepting donations to the Special Olympics through Saturday at the restaurant.

Before the fundraiser, the Issaquah Police Department is leading a motorcycle benefit ride. Motorcyclists should the meet at Building E on the Issaquah Microsoft campus, 21925 S.E. 51st St., at 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The police-led ride starts at 12:30 p.m.

For the raffle, tickets cost $2 apiece, and people do not need to be present to win. Proceeds benefit the Special Olympics.

In addition to the Salish Lodge & Spa prize, raffle items include a couple of rounds of golf at Mount Si Golf Course, and a monthlong membership at 24 Hour Fitness.
