'Tip-A-Cop' Night at Tin Roof Bistro Thursday

MBPD and the restaurant are partnering to raise funds for Special Olympics. Best part: Dine and reap the benefits of service from MBPD staff!

Diners at Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach are promised "an extra level of service" on Thursday from 5-9 p.m. when law enforcement officers and professional staff from the Manhattan Beach Police Department partner with the restaurant’s staff for a "Tip-A-Cop" fundraiser, according to an MBPD press release.

The event is intended to provide guests with a memorable dining experience and exceptional service while also collecting tips and donations to benefit Special Olympics. One hundred percent of the tips from this event directly benefit local Special Olympics athletes.    

“For many years, law enforcement and Special Olympics have enjoyed a wonderful partnership," said MB Chief of Police Eve Irvine. "This is our way of going above and beyond that relationship by helping to raise public awareness and money for this amazing organization and the incredible athletes who participate.”

All tips are a tax-deductible donation to Special Olympics, according to the press release. Special Olympics provides athletic training and competition for children and adults in the South Bay who have intellectual disabilities.

“At Tin Roof Bistro, we are always looking for ways to stay deeply rooted within our community. This is a wonderful event that benefits a great cause and great people. We are honored to be a part of it," said Julian King, general manager, Tin Roof Bistro.

Clever idea and kudos to the police dept volunteers. So, what is the Tin Roof actually contributing to this event (not the wait staff)? They get the free publicity and more traffic to the restaurant. Are they also making a donation or discounting meals to help draw more people?
