Tip-A-Cop raises money for Special Olympics

Posted: Updated:

Deputies with the Madison County Sheriff's Department traded in their badges for aprons Saturday afternoon to help benefit Special Olympics programs.

The benefit was part of the Tip-A-Cop program sponsored at Red Robin Gourmet Burger restaurants.

All the tip proceeds will go to raise money and public awareness for athletes in the Alabama Special Olympics.

"To help defer travel costs, they compete all across the nation, all around the world and if we can help them raise that money so they can still compete and give their all at their competitions that's what we are going to do," said Deputy Stacy Rutherford.

Deputies served at locations in Bridgestreet and on Carl T. Jones Drive.
