Hosted by the Wilton Police Department, Tip a Cop will return to Cactus Rose Restaurant and Tequila Bar Nov. 17. From 6-10 p.m., Wilton police will be waiting tables, and 100% of the tips they earn from patrons will be donated to Special Olympics Connecticut as part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR).
The LETR is an event in which law enforcement officers run with the Flame of Hope to the opening ceremonies of local Special Olympics competitions, as well as state and national games.
Every year, Wilton police officers participate in the run and contribute with fundraising initiatives, competing with local departments to see which agency can raise the most money.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide yearround sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Cactus Rose is at 5 River Road in Wilton Center.
