THOMASTON — On Thursday September 20 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Applebee’s of Thomaston will be hosting their annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser for Special Olympics Maine.
Local law enforcement, fire, EMS, and USCG members will be volunteering their time assisting the wait-staff to raise money for Special Olympics Maine.
Envelopes will be left on every table and you can tip any amount anonymously toward the cause. The last two years this Thomaston event set state Tip-A-Cop records for the most money raised.

There are several auction items that you can bid on from now until the event, including a solid wood cabinet valued at $325, and dinner of the month for two at Applebee’s for one year, a $480 value.
The Applebee’s bee and apple mascots will be on hand, as well as McGruff the crime dog and Sparky. Local Special Olympic athletes will also be in attendance, and come congratulate them on their medal winning accomplishments at the Maine Summer and Winter Games.
Applebee’s will also be hosting three other events before the Tip-A-Cop to raise even more money for Special Olympics Maine:
