20 police officers will be donning aprons at a local California Pizza Kitchen on Wednesday as part of a larger fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Southern California.
Uniformed LAPD reserve officers are set to be hosts, waiters and bussers at the CPK located in the Westfield Century City and serve food and drinks alongside restaurant staff from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Patrons will have the opportunity to tip the officer to benefit the Special Olympics fundraiser in addition to their regular gratuity for the server.
According to the fundraiser’s website, 20% of all food and beverage sales will benefit local Special Olympics athletes during CPK’s Tip-A-Cop night.
