The Richland County Sheriff’s Department will be holding a Tip-A-Cop fundraiser to Benefit Special Olympics South Carolina.

The event will be October 21 at Red Robin restaurants, 247 Forum Drive, Columbia. Deputies will wait tables for tips for lunch from 11 am to 2:30 pm, and dinner from 6 – 8 pm.

All proceeds go directly to support year-round sports training and competition for the 22,036 Special Olympic Athletes in South Carolina. By participating in sports, physical fitness and healthcare education programs, Special Olympics South Carolina athletes increase self-confidence and social skills, improve physical and motor skills, and have better success in leading more productive and independent lives.

For more information contact Special Deputy Debo Hayes at 803-360-2446 or just show up at Red Robin for lunch or dinner October 21.
