(BLOOMINGTON) - Tonight, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Troopers from the Indiana State Police Bloomington Post along with staff members at the Bloomington Texas Roadhouse location will be collecting tips from Texas Roadhouse customers for donations to help more than 11,000 athletes with the Special Olympics of Indiana.

During the week of June 24th through 30th, the Indiana State Police will be partnering with Texas Roadhouse Restaurants around the state for the annual Tip-A-Cop event to raise funds for the Special Olympics.

"The Indiana State Police, and law enforcement in general have a bond with Special Olympics and we are pleased to be part of the tip-a-cop fund raising event," says Superintendent of the Indiana State Police, Doug Carter.

This year continues to build the strong law enforcement Tip-A-Cop tradition benefiting Special Olympics Indiana.

Customers are encouraged to donate gratuities in envelopes marked for the Special Olympics, leaving them with troopers at the door as they leave the restaurant. Each donation made helps to raise funds and awareness for adults and children with intellectual disabilities. Throughout its history, the Tip-A-Cop fundraising event, with various restaurant partners, has generated over $2.5 million for Special Olympics.

For more information about the Indiana Special Olympics, or to host a fund raising event, please contact Stephanie Manner, Manager of Community Partnerships (LETR) at (317) 713-4291.
