Tip-A-Cop Raises More Than $6,000

Tip-A-Cop Raises More Than $6,000

April 19, 2014

On Thursday, April 17th between 11:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., members of the public were invited to partner with the Lee’s Summit Police Department in a fundraising effort for Missouri Special Olympics at Habanero’s Restaurant for their annual "Tip-A-Cop" event.

Officers from the Police Department waited tables and took orders for donations and tips. Special Olympics Torch Run t-shirts were also available for sale.

This year's event also featured the First Annual Taco Eating Contest. Lee's Summit Police Officer Mike Ball created the event to see how many tacos could be eaten in three minutes. Seven contestants took the challenge before a crowd of their peers cheering them on. Just seconds before the end of the three minutes Officer Brett Collins finished his sixth hard shell taco.

Officer Matt Hargrave announced late Thursday evening this year's event broke the $6,000 mark.

The annual Tip-A-Cop event is a fund raiser that is done in addition to the annual "Polar Plunge" fund raiser and in conjunction with the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Special Olympics is a chosen charity for all law enforcement agencies and has been a partnered charity with the Lee’s Summit Police Department for several years.
