Tip-A-Cop event coming to Bonney Lake Oct. 25

Red Robin's Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop event is coming to Bonney Lake Saturday, Oct. 25.

Red Robin’s Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop event is coming to Bonney Lake Saturday, Oct. 25.

Every year, Red Robin’s across the country allow uniformed officers to act as waiters retrieving water, fry refills, ranch refills and other tasks throughout the restaurants.

Patrons are then given an envelope where they can tip the officers.

All proceeds are given to the Special Olympics.

This year, the Bonney Lake Police Department will be participating.

There will be two shifts at the Bonney Lake Red Robin, one starting at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the second shift 4 to 8 p.m.

Based on the success of the event, Officer Daron Wolschleger said officers may work during the hour break in between the shifts instead.

“We are very excited to participate now that we have a Red Robin in Bonney Lake,” Wolschleger said. “We have spoken to officers at other departments and they have told us how much fun and gratifying this event is. We couldn’t be more excited.”
