White Oak police officers will volunteer their time to wait tables for a good cause.

Tips for Cops will take place on Monday from 5-9 p.m. at The Rose Bar and Grille in White Oak.

Officers will donate 100 percent of their tips to the food pantry at Sampson's Mills Presbyterian Church. The Rose will give 10 percent of each restaurant check to the food pantry.

White Oak police Officer Jessica Hetherington, who is organizing the event, came up with the idea to give back to the community.

“We're very fortunate that we have good jobs and we work in the community,” she said. “We care about the community. In the economic times right now, we know people are struggling.”

“It's a very good idea and I hope people come out and support it,” White Oak police Chief Lou Bender said.

White Oak Mayor Ina Jean Marton also will be waiting tables. “It's great for the community and food bank,” she said. “Our police officers are doing this and rallying around a good cause. I'm very happy to be part of this. I'll be down there also serving.”

“We're doing it to give back to the community as it has been supporting us for the six years we've been here,” The Rose co-owner Cori Gorski said.

Tips for Cops will feature a Chinese auction, 50/50 raffle and bake sale.

Local businesses and sponsors that donated to the event are Apter Industries, World of Values, Magisterial District Judge Tom Miller's office, Elegante Details, Dorothy's Candies, White Oak Bowl, White Oak Animal Safe Haven, Dollar General, Mac's Sunoco, Veltre's Pizza, Dairy Queen and Pizza Hut.

Also contributing were Rite Aid, Bob Massie Toyota, Busy Beaver, GNC, Olson Eye Care, Lou's Brews, Pribanic & Pribanic law office, GDC Jewelry, Nails by Karen, Patti's Pasticceria Italian Bakery, Rita's Italian Ice, Taco Bell, My Big Fat Greek Gyro, Wendy's, Pat's Hallmark, Kings Family Restaurant, Breitingers, the Haynes family, Coulter Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, Sampson's Mills Food Bank volunteers, North Versailles Police Department, The Palms at O'Neil, Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy Associates and White Oak Rotary Club.

The Rose Bar and Grille is located at 2811 Lincoln Way.
