Tuesday night may be a great night for an order of guacamole and a margarita at Cactus Rose.
Officers with the Wilton Police Department will host a Tip-A-Cop event to benefit Special Olympics Connecticut at Cactus Rose Restaurant and Tequila Bar, Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 6 – 10 p.m.. Cactus Rose is located at 5 River Rd. in Wilton.
Tip-A-Cop is a Law Enforcement Torch Run event to benefit Special Olympics Connecticut. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is one of the campaign’s largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicles. This year-round program involves law enforcement officers from across the state who volunteer their time to raise awareness and funds through events including Tip-a-Cops, Cop-on-Tops, and Jail N’ Bail fundraisers.
In addition, each year in June, over 1,500 officers and athletes carry the Special Olympics “Flame of Hope” through hundreds of cities and towns across the state, covering over 530 miles over three days. The runners run the final leg and light the ceremonial cauldron during Opening Ceremonies for the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games.
