Posted on 07/05/2008

The public is invited to join the Orland Park Police Department and Red Lobster for the annual Cops & Lobsters Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics on Friday, April 4, 2008 at the Orland Park Red Lobster, 148th and LaGrange Road.

Orland Park Police officers and personnel will assist the wait staff by serving patrons soft drinks, water and coffee from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The Cops and Lobsters event is held each year to raise funds that go directly to the Illinois Special Olympics program. This program enables thousands of special Olympians to participate in events around the state and to win medals and awards for their achievements.

A special booth will be set up in Red Lobster where commemorative items such as Torch Run t-shirts, baseball caps and pins will be available for purchase to help raise funds. Officers will also be selling $10.00 raffle tickets to win a Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Proceeds benefit the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

The Police Department encourages the public to come out to enjoy a great meal, meet the Police Department personnel and help support Special Olympics.

For more information, please contact Lt. Robert Reilly of the Orland Park Police Department at (708) 349-4111.
