Tigard Police Participating In Oregon Special Olympics Fundraiser

On Saturday, April 17th, a fundraiser to benefit Oregon Special Olympics will take place at the Red Robin Restaurant located at 10100 SW Washington Square Rd. in Tigard. The event is scheduled to take place from 11 am until 8 pm at the popular eating establishment found in Square Too.

Ten or more Tigard Officers will be participating in efforts to raise awareness and money to help support the Oregon Special Olympics. This event is considered to be one of the most essential fundraisers to help continue the important work of Oregon Special Olympics to provide year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

The event, fittingly titled “Tip-a-Cop,” is an opportunity for local law enforcement to help. Officers will assist wait staff throughout the day and find opportunity to speak to restaurant guests about the event and how they can help if interested. The high energy and fun environment typically lends itself to an even better experience while dining out. Both young and old will enjoy participating in the event.

Last year, Tigard Police and the Washington Square Red Robin location placed first amongst the entire state in the number of dollars collected to benefit Oregon Special Olympics. Tigard Police is hoping to clinch the number one berth again this year. Please consider stopping by and joining the worthwhile effort.
