Cactus Rose is teaming up with Wilton’s Finest to benefit Special Olympics as part of the “Tip a Cop” effort. Come to Cactus Rose on Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 6-9 p.m.. Officers from the Wilton Police Department will help serve that night and 100 percent of their tips will go to support Special Olympics. It is a fun evening for the whole family to demonstrate giving back.
According to the Wilton Police Department’s website, there is a more than thirty year relationship between Special Olympics and law enforcement throughout the United States. Most publicly, police departments in all 50 states as well as more than 30 countries run the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, “an international series of torch relays run by law enforcement officers, leading up to each state or nation’s Special Olympics Summer Games. Law enforcement officers raise money in conjunction with their respective Torch Runs for their local Special Olympics programs.”
