Police officers will be putting down the citation pad this October to raise money for charity at the NewPark Mall.
Officers from the Newark Police Department are partnering with Red Robin Gourmet Burgers to raise money for the Special Olympics of Northern California. This is one of 27 events taking place simultaneously throughout the state.
Police officers will be helping servers bring food and drinks to people that day, a Red
Robin staff member told Patch. The company
will be staffing at normal levels. Officers will be walking around, talking to guests, and collecting
tips. The tips they collect will be
given to the Special Olympics of Northern California, which provides free athletic
coaching to people with intellectual and mobility challenges.
The event will take place from 11 a.m.- 8 p.m. on October 12, 2013. Red Robin is located 1031 at New Park Mall in Newark, California.
