VAIL – Vail police officers will be serving tables at Russell’s restaurant in Vail Village Wednesday night as part of the national “Tip-A-Cop” program to raise funds for Special Olympics Colorado.

While waiting tables, officers will solicit voluntary donations to support programs sponsored by the Colorado Special Olympics. Russell’s will offer entrees for 50 percent off from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.Wednesday.

“We would encourage anyone looking for a good meal and a good cause to make their dinner plans with us,” says Vail Police Chief Dwight Henninger.

Vail police also are active in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. In Colorado, the run is over 1,700 miles statewide and culminates at the Summer Games where officers join the athletes in lighting the cauldron to kick off the Games. The torch will pass through the Vail area in May.
