The City of Geneva Police Department serves the community in many ways, most notably by keeping it safe. On Thursday, March 7, 2019, Geneva Police will expand their service horizons by serving dinner guests at FoxFire Restaurant from 7 - 9 pm; the tips they earn will go to Special Olympics of Illinois.
This is the second annual "Tip-a-Cop" event courtesy of FoxFire Restaurant. "The main purpose of this event is to help Special Olympics, a great charity that transforms the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by allowing them to realize their full potential by enhancing physical fitness, social and motor skills, and self-confidence," said KC Gulbro, chef and owner of FoxFire. "Our guests are encouraged to tip the officers for their service, and FoxFire will match the tips; last year the police earned over $1,000! We'll also have envelopes available for anyone who just wants to make a donation."
This fun event is a wonderful way for the public to help the Geneva Police Department help others. "This event shows the human side of the men and women of the Geneva Police Department," added Gulbro. "Last year we even had the Chief waiting on tables, and that says a lot about this group of officers and how much they believe in this charity and in helping the community. We're honored that we can offer them a platform to reach people in this way and to help a worthwhile cause. We're happy to support the Geneva Police Department and let them know how much the community appreciates them."
FoxFire will also be selling tickets for a 50/50 raffle, where half the proceeds will go to the Special Olympics of Illinois, and the other half to the raffle winner. "Last year the winner donated the winnings to the Special Olympics," said Gulbro. "That's how special the people in our community are."
