Tri-Citians making Friday night dinner plans can feast on pasta and breadsticks while helping provide Christmas for kids in the community.
Law enforcement officers will be at the Olive Garden in Kennewick from 6-9 p.m. tonight for a special Tip A Cop event.
Officers will be helping servers in the restaurant and collecting tips to benefit the Cops for Kids program, which gives less fortunate children in the community a chance to go shopping with cops for Christmas gifts.
Each child participating in Cops for Kids will get a $100 gift card to be spent at the Kennewick Walmart store Dec. 11.
Both the Tip A Cop and Cops for Kids events are sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police Tri-Cities Lodge No. 7.
