When Texas Roadhouse first began this adventure with Special Olympics, they raised over $20,000.00 to help athletes compete in year around sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Last year Texas Roadhouse and Tip A Cop raised over $35,000.00 and helped over 14,000 children and adults participate in the year around events.

During the week of September 18th through September 29th, the Indiana State Police and local police departments will be partnering with Texas Roadhouse Restaurants around the state for the annual Tip-A-Cop event to raise funds for the Indiana Special Olympics.

The Superintendent of the Indiana State Police, Doug Carter, said, “The Indiana State Police and law enforcement in general, have a bond with Special Olympics and are pleased to be part of the tip-a-cop fund raising event.” This year continues to build the strong law enforcement Tip-A-Cop tradition benefiting Special Olympics Indiana.

Customers are encouraged to donate gratuities in envelopes marked for the Special Olympics, leaving them with troopers at the door as they leave the restaurant. If you bring in the flyer attached to this release, the management will donate 10% of the bill to Special Olympics. Each donation made helps to raise funds and awareness for adults and children with intellectual disabilities. Throughout its history, the Tip-A-Cop fundraising event, with various restaurant partners, has generated over $2.5 million for Special Olympics.
