Reno, NV - Today, you'll get a chance to enjoy a barbecue meal and help out the community.
Several troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol, as well as other employees from the Department of Public Safety, will be volunteering their time to raise money for Special Olympics.
They will be serving up some barbecue at Famous Dave's in Reno. It's all for the annual "Tip-A-Cop" event. As customers are greeted, each volunteer will leave an envelope with each table for people wishing to make a donation. These tips are in addition to the regular server's gratuity. All of the extra tips will stay in Northern Nevada to pay for the sports training and competition of local Special Olympics athletes.
Here are the specifics:
When: Friday, March 2, 2012
