Residents are encouraged to mark their calendar for dinner plans on July 28 to help Irving Police and show community support for the Special Olympics athletes.
The Irving Police Department (IPD) will assist the wait staff at Texas Roadhouse, 2525 W. Interstate Highway 635 on Thursday, July 28 from 5 to 9 p.m. to help support Special Olympics of Texas. IPD will also be selling T-shirts and coins that day.
IPD will be volunteering at the restaurant to ensure that customers have hot bread, as well as full glasses of water and tea, and their tips will go to Special Olympics.
Additionally, on the night of the event, customers will have the opportunity to view and learn more about various police vehicles, such as the SWAT vehicle.
This is the fourth year IPD has participated in Texas Roadhouse’s statewide fundraising event for the Special Olympics of Texas. Each year, Texas Roadhouse restaurants across Texas allow law enforcement departments to come work for the tips. The annual Tip-A-Cop event has helped raise thousands of dollars toward the Law Enforcement Torch Run that directly benefits Special Olympics athletes.
