RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- On Thursday evening, May 2nd, troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol will be celebrating their 10th anniversary of participation in the annual “Tip-A-Cop” fundraiser at Claim Jumper in Reno.
On the evening of the event, each volunteer-trooper will be paired up with a regular staff member during the four hour fundraiser. As each table of patrons is seated, the trooper will give a brief explanation about the event and place an envelope on the table to help raise “special tips." This extra tip is in addition to the normal server’s entitled gratuity. All of the money raised will stay in Northern Nevada to help support the sports training and competition events for the athletes in the Special Olympics Nevada programs throughout the year.
The restaurant will also be raffling off one of their famous Claim Jumper Chocolate Motherlode Cakes that evening.
