Law Enforcement gives a whole new meaning to “protect and serve” at Kelsey’s Tip-A-Cop event.
City of Kawartha Lakes Police officers will be waiting on tables as celebrity waiters on Thursday April 10th and will be donating all their tips to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Cops for cancer started in June 1994 when Sergeant Gary Goulet of the Edmonton Police Service heard that a local boy dealing with cancer was being teased at school because he had lost all his hair with chemo treatment.
Sergeant Goulet gathered a group of fellow officers who had agreed to shave their heads in support of this student. Goulet and his fellow bald headed officers attended at the boy’s school with plenty of media. They showed the kids that being bald was okay and honored this boy by allowing him to spend the day riding in the cruiser and attending at the station.
The City Of Kawartha Lakes Police Service members, both uniformed and civilian decided to participate in the event for the first time in 2005 and have continued the event annually.
Once again, Kelsey’s restaurant in Lindsay has partnered with us to host this event on Thursday April 10th beginning at 5:30pm.
Thursday evening is wing night at Kelsey’s. Bring your entire family and let us serve you your favorite wings or anything else on Kelsey’s vast menu.
We can’t promise we will get your order right, but we will have a whole lot of fun trying!
Tip-A-Cop has been our favorite way for officers to raise money for the fight against cancer.
