Geneva police volunteer to raise money for Special Olympics

GENEVA – Officers with the Geneva Police Department will be taking on a new role this weekend, strapping on aprons to serve burgers and sandwiches to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois.

Police officers will volunteer their time serving meals from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Tom and Eddie’s, 1042 Commons Drive at the Geneva Commons mall during this Burgers and Badges event.

Officers will accept contributions for the Special Olympics, and the restaurant will donate 10 percent of its sales from noon to 8 p.m. to the organization.

Police will have giveaways to hand out to children, and adults can buy raffle tickets to win a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, which will be on display at the restaurant.

Special Olympics athletes also will participate in the event. 

Last year, Geneva police raised $2,500 for Special Olympics at a similar fundraising event.

Special Olympics Illinois is a nonprofit organization that offers year-round training and competition for about 34,000 adults and children with disabilities. For information, visit www.soill.org.
