THANK YOU from San Jacinto College Police Department!

We wanted to send a big THANK YOU to all the San Jacinto College Students, Employees, Family and Friends that attended the Tip-A-Cop event at Texas Roadhouse-Pasadena!

With your generous donations, San Jacinto College Police Department together with Rice University Police Department raised over $2,300!!

From the Special Olympics Texas Facebook page: “Last Thursday’s statewide ‘Tip A Cop Night’ at Texas Roadhouse generated $181,616 for Special Olympics Texas, marking a new record for the annual fundraiser which was put on by police officers and members of nearly 100 law enforcement agencies, across 53 Texas Roadhouse locations in the Lone Star State. The reported total is expected to slightly increase, as individual locations continue to count funds and donations are still being received. The various groups involved in this event are members of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), SOTX’s largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. In 2016, the group collected $170,000 during the single-night statewide fundraiser. So, if you waited tables, ate supper or just helped spread the word, we appreciate you!”
