Antioch Police Department Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop

On Thursday, February 17th members of the Antioch Police Department along with a Special Olympics Athlete and her mother, volunteered as Celebrity Waiters at Chili’s located at 5809 Lone Tree Way, Antioch.

General Manager Sherie Farwell, Managers Rachael Harding and Jeff Henley and the remainder of the hard working Chili’s staff are deserving of praise for their welcoming spirit and patience in working with the Celebrity Waiters. 

The Chili’s Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop event was a huge success.  As a result of the tremendous community support and gracious donations from many community members, City employees and dignitaries who donated to this worthwhile cause, the fundraising efforts raised $1,686.00.

The outpouring of support during these difficult economic times is a testament to the caring and nurturing nature of our community. The amount of money donated this year exceeded our totals from last year and also exceeded the totals of eight other agencies who participated in Chili’s Tip-A-Cop events in their respective cities. Everyone should be proud of what was accomplished!

The gracious donations are appreciated.  The money we help raise will assist individuals with developmental disabilities reach their fullest potential.  Just know that the charitable donations received will help shape and enrich the lives of the Special Olympic Athletes. The Antioch Police Department thanks you and so do the Special Olympic Athletes!
