Some highway patrol troopers are trading in their badges for restaurant tags - all in the name of a good cause.
Nevada and California Highway Patrol troopers will take part in a Tip-a-Cop fundraiser Saturday at Hard Rock Cafe inside Harvey's Casino at Stateline.
Troopers will collect tips and serve guests from 11am - 4pm and then again at 5pm to 9pm. Harvey's is located at 18 U.S. Highway 50.
Additionally, law enforcement officers and firefighters will compete in a chicken wing eating contest around 4pm at the restaurant that same day. The winner of the event will earn a $500 gift certificate that will be donated to their charity of choice, along with bragging rights and a trophy.
Proceeds from the event will benefit area Special Olympic athletes and help pay for sports training and competition activities.
