Troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol will be volunteering their time at Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que restaurant on Thursday, February 21, to help raise money and awareness for the hundreds of athletes who participate and train in the Special Olympics Nevada programs throughout the year.
Troopers will be paired up with a regular staff member of the restaurant and will work for additional tips during the lunch and dinner hours. As each table of patrons is seated, the trooper will give a brief explanation about the fundraiser and will leave an envelope on the table. Those wishing to make a donation to Special Olympics Nevada will have the opportunity to do so and this tip is in addition to the normal server's entitled gratuity.
All of the money raised will stay right here in Northern Nevada to offset the training, equipment and other expenses in an effort to allow the athletes to participate in their sporting activity of choice during the year.
All of the fun will be taking place on Thursday, February 21st, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm to accommodate the lunchtime patrons, and from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm for those planning on joining us for dinner. Famous Dave's is located at 4925 Kietzke Lane.
