'Cops for Cash' at Texas Roadhouse

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is hosting a 'Cash for Cops' fundraiser at the Texas Roadhouse on Monday.

Police officers from multiple agency in the Tri-Cities will be at the restaurant greeting and serving guests food. In return, customers are encouraged to tip officers to support the FOP Memorial Foundation, which helps officers who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.

"For us, it's not just about getting bad guys, it's about caring about our community," said Marco Monteblanco, the president of the foundation. So we want to get more involved, and what better way to get involved than to try to raise money for lost law enforcement officers and their families."

The fundraiser is from 4-9p.m. at the Texas Roadhouse, off of Columbia Center Boulevard, in Kennewick.
