"Serve and Protect" will take on a new meaning as local enforcement officers will volunteer to serve food for the first "Tip A Cop" dinner, scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at La Fonda Restaurant, 548 Broadway in El Centro.
La Fonda and the Camacho family, in conjunction with Imperial Valley Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics, will conduct the "Tip A Cop" dinner.
"Tip A Cop" promises to earn money for Special Olympics Imperial Valley while providing a fun, festive atmosphere for diners.
All proceeds and donations from the evening will go to Special Olympics. "Tip A Cop" will be coming to other Imperial Valley communities and is one of many ways law enforcement officers raise funds and public awareness for Special Olympics.
The torch run is the largest grass-roots fund raiser for Special Olympics in the world. This year's torch run is scheduled for March 23, beginning at the downtown Calexico Port of Entry.
