Police officers in the Kansas City area were working alongside waiters and waitresses Saturday to raise money for Special Olympics Missouri.
The Kansas City Police Department and other agencies teamed up with three Corner Cafe locations for the Tip-a-Cop fundraiser. Officers in uniform are assisting cafe staff by taking orders, serving food and cleaning tables.
The event runs until 1 p.m. Saturday.
Proceeds from last year’s fundraiser exceeded $14,000.
