At Monday’s event in Templeton, Sheriff Ian Parkinson told PRDN, “It’s a great event. Unfortunately with COVID, we had to cancel our regular Tip-A-Cop Dinners, which are the largest fundraiser for Special Olympics of San Luis Obispo County. We compromised and came up with the drive-thru and people are jumping on board.”
