Tip-A-Cop event Wednesday starts at 5:30 p.m. at Texas Roadhouse

Tri-Citians wanting to support an annual Christmas event that lets less-fortunate kids shop with cops can help by enjoying a steak or barbecue dinner.

Law enforcement officers will be helping servers at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Texas Roadhouse in Kennewick, while raising money for the Fraternal Order of Police's shopping event.

Last week's Tip-A-Cop at Olive Garden raised $2,700 for Cops and Kids, commonly known as Shop with a Cop.

It's the first time officers have held a Tip-A-Cop event at Texas Roadhouse, 845 N. Columbia Center Blvd. Officers at Texas Roadhouse also will be collecting special tips to benefit Kids and Cops.

At the annual event, kids get $100 to spend at Walmart in the Tri-Cities. They get paired with an officer who helps them get holiday gifts for their families.
