Correctional staff from Kern Valley State Prison and California City Correctional Facility recently came together at the Black Angus Restaurant in Bakersfield for the Special Olympics Southern California-Kern County Tip-A-Cop dinner.
Correctional officers, sergeants, lieutenants, and a chief deputy warden worked alongside Black Angus wait staff to treat the night’s patrons to a first-class dining experience they will not soon forget.
By the end of the event, correctional staff were able to raise $2,142 in tips and donations for the Special Olympics. Special Olympics representatives thanked the CDCR staff who attended from and made this great night a success.
