The Chattanooga Police Department will give new meaning to 'protect and serve' on Wednesday as they host a 'Tip-A-Cop' event. You can enjoy a tasty meal, then 'Tip-A-Cop' as they serve as celebrities waiters at Chili's Bar and Grill in Hixson, near the Northgate Mall.

The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and again from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. One hundred percent of the tips will go directly to support Special Olympics athletes. Many of the athletes will be there for you to meet.

The Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competitions in a variety of Olympic-type sports for both children and athletes.
