Diners at Texas Roadhouse in Kirkwood Wednesday might be served by a St. Louis County Police Officer, rather than the average waiter.
County Police and the Kirkwood Police Department are teaming up to host a Cops and Cowboys fundraiser for the Special Olympics. T-shirt sales, donations and 10 percent of all sales will go to the program, which organizes athletic competitions for people with mental disabilities.
Last year, officers raised between $2,000 and $3,000. McGruff the Crime Dog and Texas Roadhouse mascot Andy the Armadillo will also make an appearance.
“It’s going to be a really family-oriented event,” said Detective Aaron Schafer with county police.
Cops and Cowboys will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday.
