Dallas dining icon, Norma’s Cafe, will partner with Special Olympics Texas on Wednesday, May 22 for the sixth annual Law Enforcement Torch Run’s Tip-A-Cop event. This year’s event is in honor of Sergeant Brad Freis, a former Addison Police Department officer who passed away last July. Sergeant Freis was actively involved with Special Olympics Texas and helped raise millions of dollars for the organization.
Sergeant Freis spent 38 years as a motor officer, sergeant and mentor with the Addison Police Department, and after his retirement, he remained actively involved with the department and surrounding community through Special Olympics Texas. He was a member of the organization’s Presidents Advisory Council, ran and organized the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run, and represented Texas at a Special Olympics World Games Final Leg. He was inducted into the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Hall of Fame in July 2016.
Beginning May 1 and throughout the month, Norma’s Cafe will be accepting donations for Special Olympics Texas. The Tip-A-Cop event will take place on May 22, when local law enforcement officers from the Dallas, Addison, Frisco, Plano and Collin County Community College Police Departments will serve Norma’s Cafe guests at all five locations from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Guest donations, tips and a portion of sales from the day will benefit Special Olympics Texas. In 2018, Norma’s Cafe and its guests raised more than $11,400 for the organization and its athletes.
