Tip-a-cop raises $2,500

Tip-a-Cop night at Akins BBQ in Bell was a huge success this year. A large crowd of local citizens came out to support the Special Olympics of Florida and local law enforcement during this annual fundraiser. Local law enforcement from Lancaster Correctional and Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office volunteered to be waiters and waitresses on the evening of April 5. All involved were pleased when approximately $2,500 was raised during the four hour event. Lancaster Correctional and Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office personnel would like to thank Scott and Kim Akins of Akins BBQ for hosting the event and send out a thank you to all those who came out to support Special Olympics in Florida.
