Laguna Beach P.D. Hosts Tip-A-Cop Fundraiser Benefiting Special Olympics


Laguna Beach Police Department employees will be volunteering their time in conjunction with Special Olympics athletes to work alongside Ruby’s Diner restaurant staff to help raise money for the Special Olympics Orange County Region at a Tip-A-Cop® fundraiser.

The Laguna Beach Police Department, along with the international law enforcement community, has a longstanding relationship with the Special Olympics. Police officers partner with area restaurants to hold Special Olympics fundraisers on specific dates, hosted by one or more restaurants. Officers and Special Olympics athletes meet and greet customers, help take orders and deliver drinks and food orders, while interacting with restaurant guests.

Customers are encouraged to “tip the cop” for their service in the form of a tax-deductible donation, 100% of the proceeds will go to the Special Olympics program. This is in addition to the customary tip left for the restaurant’s server for their service.

There will be an exotic car display, which will include Lamborghinis, Peganis, McLarens and Porsches. The police department will also have a police car, police motorcycle, police K-9 unit, drone demonstration, face painting station and balloon artist on-site for this event. The community can enjoy great food, interact with some of Laguna Beach officers and Special Olympics athletes while supporting a great cause.

Special Olympics relies on fundraisers for the many services it provides to Special Olympics Athletes.
