This Saturday, members of the Bellevue Police Department will trade in their handcuffs for aprons to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Washington.

During this “Tip-A-Cop” event, volunteers will be stationed in the Red Robin restaurant at Bellevue Square Mall from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. serving patrons and accepting contributions from restaurant guests.

All of the event’s proceeds will remain in the area to benefit the local athletes of Special Olympics within King County who participate in Special Olympics Washington programming at no cost to themselves or their families. The effort is comprised of personnel from numerous law enforcement agencies across the state of Washington, with a goal of collecting $100,000 throughout the state over the weekend.
