(Prince George, VA) – “Tip A Cop” Fundraiser Deemed a Success

Patrons who arrived at Nanny’s Barbeque this past Friday night were surprised when they discovered the restaurant was swarming with PG police officers, PG sheriff’s deputies and Riverside Regional Jail staff. Fortunately, no crime had been committed.

The officers and deputies were there to support the Prince George Special Olympics Programs and the Law Enforcement Torch Run by trading in their handcuffs and badges for menus and serving trays. Donations, in the form of tips, were accepted for this worthy cause. This year we were able to raise over $3,200 hundred dollars for Special Olympics and the Law Enforcement Torch Run. We are proud to report that total monies raised were more than any previous years for this fundraiser.

A special thanks to all those that made the Nanny’s Tip-A-Cop such a huge success this year, all to benefit the Virginia Special Olympics, and especially the Prince George Special Olympic Athletes.
