Police to serve Special Olympics by serving Red Lobster dinners

April 13, 2003

Harford County law enforcement and correctional officers will act as assistant servers helping the wait staff during a Cops and Lobsters fund-raiser for Special Olympics Maryland from noon to 3 p.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and April 23 at the Bel Air Red Lobster, 615 Bel Air Road.

When the bill comes, diners will be asked to donate to Special Olympics. The donation is not part of the bill or tip. If the diners wish to make a contribution, they will be given an envelope for the donation and asked to deposit the contribution in a special box at the greeters' desk.

Some Olympians and volunteer greeters will be at the restaurant during the fund-raiser to explain the Special Olympics program. The donated funds are divided among Maryland counties to pay for the athletes' equipment, their living expenses during away competitions and the coaches' expenses. The athletes' families are not asked to pay for their sons and daughters to participate in Special Olympics.
