Lynnwood residents and visitors are invited to attend the Annual Tip-A-Cop Fundraiser at Claim Jumper on Thursday, April 12 from 5-9 p.m. During the event, members of local law enforcement agencies will serve as celebrity waiters, with all of their tips benefiting the Special Olympics Washington.
Lynnwood’s Claim Jumper, located outside Alderwood Mall near the movie theater at 18725 33rd Ave. W., is one of the participating locations.
Each year, this fundraiser provides opportunities for those with intellectual disabilities to grow and discover new strengths and skills by supporting Special Olympic programs in the community. The life-enriching programs help participants grow as productive and respected members of society through sports, education and athlete health.
For over 15 years, Tip-A-Cop events have raised thousands of dollars for Special Olympics Washington as part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. In addition, the event serves to increase the public’s awareness of the special capabilities, talents and needs of those with intellectual disabilities.
