Lufkin’s Texas Roadhouse to Host Fundraiser for Texas Special Olympics


As Special Olympics Texas races into the final heats of summer sports, Lufkin’s Texas Roadhouse will team up with local police to raise money for the state-wide organization. The fundraiser is part of a state-wide effort with dozens of other Texas Roadhouse locations holding fundraisers the same week. Area police officers will help serve guests at the “Tip-A-Cop” event and collect donations.

Over the past thirteen years, Texas Roadhouse restaurants across the state have raised more than $1,489,333 at this event for Special Olympics. This year, Texas Roadhouse will continue its history of giving back to its communities. For this event, 100% of all donations will go directly to Special Olympics Texas.

This Thursday, July 28th, the event will run from 5:00 – 9:00 pm.

Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Texas Roadhouse opened its doors in 1993 and has more than 610 locations in 49 states and 10 foreign countries. The family-friendly restaurant is famous for hand-cut steaks, made-from-scratch sides, fresh-baked bread, and a lively atmosphere. In 2020, Texas Roadhouse was named one of America’s Best Employers for Veterans by Forbes. Texas Roadhouse also ranked sixth on FSR Magazine’s Top 50 list of Full-Service Restaurants within the US.
