Officers with the Everett (WA) Police Department will help wait tables at Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant at a local mall in a charity event to raise money for Special Olympics.

The event is part of the nationwide "Tip a Cop" campaign to raise money for Special Olympics.

Sergeant John Zeka told the Everett Herald, "This gives officers and the community a chance to get together in a positive way. We can meet and talk to people and it’s not the 911 call. It gives both sides a good opportunity to meet when it’s not something bad that has happened."

The event is set to take place on December 1st from 1100 to 1600 hours.

According to the Herald, last year's event at a Red Robin restaurant in Everett raised more than $4,600.
