TIP-A-COP TO BENEFIT NEW MEXICO SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Patrons of two Las Cruces Applebee’s restaurants will be treated to a night of fun and entertainment this week, as Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department deputies join Las Cruces Police officers and other law-enforcement agencies to raise funds for New Mexico Special Olympics athletes on Thursday, March 1.
The event is part of the Tip-a-Cop fundraiser to benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, a support organization that donates all proceeds to the athletes of New Mexico Special Olympics.

Officers will be acting as celebrity hosts and servers in exchange for tips from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday night at the Applebee’s locations on Lohman and Telshor, and also at the I-10 and Avenida de Mesilla location. All tips collected will be donated to New Mexico Special Olympics athletes.

For more information, contact Deputy Michelle Ugalde at (575) 635-7428.
