Special Olympics events set
May 8, 2012
A county-wide fundraising effort for Special Olympics San Luis Obispo County begins today with local law enforcement officers acting as “celebrity waiters” at a series of dinner and raffle events.
Proceeds will go to local Special Olympics athletes for their year-round training programs.
The opening “Tip-A-Cop” barbeque dinner is in Paso Robles, with two separate seatings at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Paso Robles Event Center, 2198 Riverside Avenue.
On Wednesday, the event shifts to San Luis Obispo, in the Madonna Inn Expo Center, 100 Madonna Way, with seatings at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
A single-seating is scheduled in Morro Bay Friday, at 5:30 p.m. at Morro Bay Community Center, 1001 Kennedy Way.
The Quarterdeck Restaurant at 1500 Branch Way will host a similar event in Arroyo Grande on Wednesday, June 6, with seatings from 5-8 p.m.
Tables cost $150, individuals $20, and children, $5.
The annual Pismo-to-Pozo Motorcycle Ride to benefit Special Olympics is set for June 3, starting with breakfast at Huckleberry’s Restaurant, 300 Five Cities Drive, starting at 9:30 a.m. A ride shirt, lunch at Pozo, live music by the Mean Gene Band, and a raffle are planned for the day.
