Diners at restaurants in Vacaville and Yuba City would have noticed something different about their servers on a recent Saturday – many are employed by the local prison.

The staff from California State Prison, Solano, raised money with a Tip-A-Cop campaign thanks to the cooperation of Red Robin eateries in two neighboring cities.

The effort raised $5,039.36 for the Special Olympics of Northern California.

“I am very proud of CSP Solano Staff for continuing to support the Special Olympics,” said Warden Eric Arnold (credit elizabeth). “Our staff have huge hearts and I’m proud to be a part of Team Solano”
