The Newport Police Department, in cooperation with Izzy’s Pizza, located at 5251 N Coast Highway, and the Lincoln County Special Olympics, conducted a Tip-A-cop event to raise money for local Special Olympics athletes. On Tuesday, April 24th, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., uniformed officers and Special Olympics athletes bussed tables, refreshed drinks, and served as waiters in an effort to raise awareness of the County’s program. A total of $1,263.17 was collected during the fund-raiser. All money raised will be used locally to enable the athletes to compete in local, regional, and statewide sports events.
The Newport Police Department would like to thank all the Izzy’s patrons that donated to this worthy cause. A special thank you for sponsoring the event is extended to Izzy’s Pizza.
