(Oxnard, CA) On Tuesday, July 24, from 5 to 9 p.m., visit Dominick’s Italian Restaurant located at 477 N. Oxnard Boulevard for the annual Tip-A-Cop event to benefit Special Olympics Ventura County. Officers from Oxnard PD will act as “celebrity servers” with all tips becoming tax-deductible donations to Special Olympics Ventura County. 
“We are pleased that Special Olympics continues to receive the support of Dominick’s,” states Special Olympics Regional Director Peggi Preston, “and we look forward to another successful evening. All the representatives from Oxnard PD are the greatest!”

Officers will be assisted by Ventura County Special Olympics athletes who help serve food and sell fundraising t-shirts. Athletes are anxious to show off their medals and share their Special Olympics experiences.
For more than twenty-five years, Ventura County law enforcement agencies have been raising tens of thousands of dollars annually allowing Special Olympics Ventura County to offer year round sports training and competition to hundreds of men and women with intellectual disabilities, ages eight years and up, free of charge, in ten sports at more than twenty training sites throughout Ventura County.
For more information on this event and Special Olympics Ventura County contact SOVC Regional Director Peggi Preston at (805) 650-7717 or
