Release from Newport Police
The Newport Police Department, employees of Newport Dutch Brothers Coffee, and members of the Lincoln County Special Olympics, recently raised $1,000.00 for local Special Olympic athletes. This money remains in Lincoln County, and is used to send local athletes to regional and state events throughout Oregon.
The Newport Police Department and Newport’s Izzy’s Pizza will be holding a TIP-A-COP fund raising event on Tuesday, April 17th, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Izzy’s at 5251 N. Coast Highway. Newport Police Officers will wait tables; all tips will be donated to the Lincoln County Special Olympics.
The total fund raising goal is $2,000, which will enable our local athletes to attend events throughout the 2012 season. Please direct any questions regarding these events to Sgt. Ken Real at 541-574-3348.
