The Sedalia Police Department partnered with Applebee's on July 13, in an effort to raise money for the Special Olympics of Missouri.

The money was raised through tips, in which several Sedalia Police officers assisted the Applebee's wait staff in taking orders for area patrons. The TIP-A-COP fundraiser brought in over $1,800.

Money was also raised through the sale of Torch Run t-shirts and well as 'Drive It Home' tickets. The money will be used to help support the Special Olympics of Missouri and the 21 sporting events that are held throughout the state.

A press release from the Sedalia Police Department says there are still a limited supply of Torch Run t-shirts and tickets available. For more information, call the SPD at 826-8100 ext. 1201 or 1202.
