 “Tip-A-Cop” Fundraising Event Benefits Special Olympics



Airports Authority Police officers will be serving up burgers and fries for a good cause at the Red Robin Restaurant in Chantilly on Saturday, March 26—and they hope you will leave them a big tip!

Tip-A-Cop is a fundraising event for The Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics. Officers from several law enforcement agencies, including the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department, will serve as “celebrity waiters” during the Saturday lunch and dinner shifts at Red Robin locations across Virginia. All tips they receive will go to Special Olympics.

 WHY:              This is a fundraising event for The Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics.

                         Red Robin locations across Virginia are hosting Tip-A-Cop events this day.

Tip-A-Cop is one of many events Airports Authority Police participate in to support Special Olympics Virginia. Join us on Saturday, September 24 for the Dulles Day Family Festival featuring the 19th annual Plane Pull. The Plane Pull pits teams of 25 people in a tug-of-war match against a FedEx jet. Over the years, the event has raised more than $1.5 million for Special Olympics Virginia. For more information or to register a team, visit
