OAK BROOK — Oak Brook police officers will wear a different type of uniform Aug. 3 when they work as servers in a local restaurant to raise money for the Special Olympics.
Labriola Bakery Café, located in the Oak Brook Promenade at Butterfield and Meyers roads, is hosting the fundraising event from 4-8:30 p.m.
Police officers will work alongside Labriola staff, greeting guests as they enter, taking food and beverage orders, and serving. Along with gratuities to the Labriola wait staff, guests are encouraged to “tip” their Oak Brook police representative in the form of a donation to Special Olympics of Illinois.
“This is an outstanding opportunity to have fun, get to know your Oak Brook Police Department, eat delicious and fresh food of Labriola Bakery Café, and raise money for a great cause,” Oak Brook Police Officer Erica Huff said.
Special Olympics of Illinois provides encouragement, year-round sports training and involvement in 19 different Olympic-type events for more than 32,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities.
