Tip-A-Cop to benefit Special Olympics

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers and Department of Public Safety employees will volunteer their time to raise money for Special Olympics Nevada and California on Saturday at Hard Rock Cafe inside Harveys Resort and Casino.

The fundraiser will take place during the lunch and dinner hours, from noon to 4 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Troopers and DPS employees will serve as volunteer waiters and waitresses as they assist the restaurant staff that day and work for "special tips."

As patrons are greeted, each volunteer will leave an envelope with each table for those wishing to make a donation. These tips are in addition to the regular server's entitled gratuity. All of the extra tips will stay in northern Nevada and northern California to pay for the sports training and competition activities that our area athletes enrolled in Special Olympics Nevada programs continue to enjoy year-round.
