Tip-A-Cop, Camarillo will have members from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Dept. volunteering as “celebrity servers”.

On Tuesday, July 21st from 5:00 to 9:30 pm, Tip-A-Cop, Camarillo will have representatives from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department volunteering their time to become “celebrity servers” with all tips becoming tax-deductible donations to Special Olympics Ventura County.

Eight law enforcement agencies and more than a dozen restaurants have teamed-up during the year in support of Special Olympics Ventura County. “Tip-A-Cop” nights are designed to invite the public to a dining experience filled with fun, entertainment, and a chance to meet their local law enforcement agencies. Tips for the evening become tax-deductible donations to Special Olympics and provide athletic training and competition to more than seven hundred (700) intellectually disabled children and adults, ages 8 years and up. All activities are free of charge to the athletes. Athletes participate in fifteen sports at more than forty training sites throughout Ventura County.

Highlights of this year’s evening include: McGruff the Crime Dog for kids to meet and get suggestions for safety, Sheriff Department police cars to look at, and an opportunity to meet deputies who will answer questions and provide information to the public. In addition, kids will receive free junior deputy stickers!

Ventura County Special Olympic athletes will also attend to help serve food, talk with guests about how Special Olympics is important to them, and sell Torch Run T-Shirts. The athletes are eager to display their medals of achievement and share their recent experiences at Special Olympics events.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and Special Olympics Ventura County would like to thank General Manager DeDe Commans and all of the staff at Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill for continuing to support this event.
