Deputies serve up fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics

The waiters at Applebee's in Cameron Park will look at a little more "uniform" than usual on Tuesday.

El Dorado County sheriff's deputies will wait on diners during the restaurant's lunch and dinner service as part of a fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Northern California.

The deputies' "tips" will be donated to the organization, which provides athletic programs for more than 13,000 people with developmental disabilities.

There are training and competition opportunities year-round within Special Olympics Northern California. Our programs are free to all eligible athletes and are possible thanks to the generous support from individuals and businesses who believe in Special Olympics athletes..

The event, called Tip A Cop, is part of the 2009 Law Enforcement Torch Run, a year-round fundraising and awareness campaign organized and managed by local law enforcement staff, a sheriff's office news release states.

The participating Applebee's is located at 3281 Coach Ln., Cameron Park.
