Police to serve Special Olympics
"Cops and Lobsters" is hoping to raise hundreds of dollars on April 19 when Washington County Sheriff Charles Mades and some of his officers take time out from their duties to serve as celebrity hosts and waiters at the Red Lobster restaurant.
During a three-hour span from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., customers will be encouraged to make donation "tips" to benefit the Special Olympics.
The Cops and Lobsters program is coordinated annually with Red Lobster personnel at the Wesel Boulevard restaurant.
Another big fund-raiser coming up is the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics to raise funds and awareness for children with special needs.
The torch run, which spans the state of Maryland, will be June 6 this year.
