supporting the Special Olympics
Tri-County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #3
To benefit the South Carolina Special Olympics, FATZ®, home of the World Famous Calabash Chicken® and the Tri-County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #3, annually hosts a Cops & Calabash Tip-A-Cop event at the restaurant on 4951 Centre Point Drive in North Charleston.
Law enforcement officers will be seating and serving FATZ® guests in exchange for tips that will go directly to support the Law Enforcement Torch Run and the 21,400 Special Olympics athletes in South Carolina. Officers from Charleston law enforcement agencies including the Fraternal Order of Police Tri-County Lodge 3 will be participating in the event.

In 2010, the Law Enforcement Torch Run raised more than $450,000 to support year-round sports training and competitions and looks to raise even more through the Calabash and Cops Tip-A-Cop event.
Special Olympics is a year-round training and competition sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Currently, there are more than 21,400 athletes in South Carolina who train and compete in a choice of 23 different Olympics-type sports.
