Tip-A-Cop®

Law enforcement personnel volunteer their time as “celebrity waiters” in restaurants and receive tips to raise funds for Special Olympics Florida. These officers work closely alongside the regular wait staff, serving water and coffee, and acting as hosts.


Special Events Around The State

In addition to the annual Torch Run and sales T-shirts and hats, the law enforcement community raises thousands of dollars for Special Olympics Florida each year by hosting local fundraising events in communities throughout the state. If you have an upcoming fundraising event that you would like posted to this page, please e-mail all information to Laura Collins.
